Ottawa Aces have made their first signing, in French half-back Louis Jouffret from Featherstone.
Jouffret, 24, has had spells with Whitehaven, Toulouse and Batley, and played for France in the World Cup 9s last year.
He said: “I am over the moon to be joining the Ottawa Aces for next season.
“As a French player, it means a lot to me to the club’s first signing. I can’t wait to meet everyone at the club and all the fans in Ottawa.”
The Aces are due to join League One ahead of the 2021 season.
