Tansey joins Sheffield on trial

Former Leeds and Hull full-back Jordan Tansey has joined Championship side Sheffield on trial.

Tansey, 31, spent last season in Australia with Darlington Point-Coleambally Roosters and the Eagles are currently awaiting his release before he can be available to play, meaning he is unlikely to feature in Sunday’s match against Bradford.

After starting his career with Leeds, Tansey moved to the NRL with Sydney Roosters, making seven appearances, before returning to Super League with Hull.

He has since played for Dewsbury, Crusaders, York, Castleford, Wakefield and Huddersfield.
His most settled spell came between 2013 and 2015, when he scored 15 tries in 48 appearances for the Tigers.

Tansey is one of four players being given a chance to earn a place in Mark Aston’s squad for 2018, which currently stands at 15.

Three others are set to play in the friendly against Bradford, including Blake Broadbent, son of of Eagles legend Paul.

Catalans Dragons academy product Max Garcia and former Wakefield half-back Tom McGretton are also to stake a claim for a first team spot.
