London Skolars have confirmed that Matt Ross will remain at the club for the 2019 campaign.

The front-rower came through the academy at Keighley Cougars and made 13 appearances for the Skolars on loan last season.

Ross has signed a one-year deal at the New River Stadium and will join his team-mates for pre-season training on Tuesday.

Skolars’ head coach Jermaine Coleman commented: “We are really glad that Matt has joined us again for the whole year.

“He brings a real appetite and desire to the team, he is a willing worker and has a character that every coach wants in their team.”

Ross added: “I really enjoyed my time with London Skolars last season, so when Jermaine approached me for the upcoming season, I was more than happy to re-sign.

“I’m looking forward to being back on the pitch with lads and taking the club.”
