Sheffield Eagles have further added to their squad for the 2015 season, signing former player Rpb Worrincy on a one-year deal.
The 29-year-old is delighted to join a club he last played for in 2008. He made 57 appearances and scored 27 tries in two previous spells in Sheffield.
“I’m excited, the success of the team over the last three or four years speaks for itself,” he said.
“Sheffield have been a team that you know you’re always going to have a tough game against and a team you expect to see at the back end of the season challenging for honours.
“It’s going to be a case of trying to force my way into a very successful team. It’s going to be a difficult task because there are players that have performed well over the last few years that have made those shirts their own, and rightly so.
“I have a lot of respect for Mark (Aston) having played under him previously.
“I had lost a little bit of direction when I first joined Sheffield and I owe a lot of gratitude to him as he gave me my first real opportunity.
“When I realised I wasn’t going to be at Halifax anymore, Sheffield was always going to be my first port of call. I really enjoyed my time here and have some great memories.”
Worrincy joins from Halifax, with whom he had been playing since 2010.
Eagles coach Mark Aston is pleased to have such an experienced player to add to his options in the threequarter line.
“Rob was very good the last time he was here and he can score tries, which is the type of player we’re always looking for,” he said.
“He will add competition for places in the back line and is a real exciting athlete.
“We had a chat about what he wants to achieve and where we’re going and he wants to be a part of it.
“He has matured now and I’m sure he can become a fans’ favourite once again.”
