Harlequins RL have signed dual international Craig Gower on a two year deal. He will link up with fellow Australian Michael Witt in what promises to be one of the most exciting half back partnerships in Super League.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of Super League,” he said, “and I’m also excited about London’s future.”
Gower, 33, has been playing rugby union with French club Bayonne, for the past three years during which time he gained international honours with Italy.
In 2008 he switched codes with Bayonne and qualified for Italy through an Italian grandfather. He played his first rugby union international against the Wallabies in 2009 and subsequently made a further 12 international appearances.
Gower is the third major signing for the 2012 season and Harlequins Head Coach Rob Powell said: “Craig is a world class player and his signing shows the intention of the club to move forward in the next licence period.
