Featherstone captain Misi Taulapapa has finally received visa clearance to return to action.
Taulapapa, 35, has been sidelined due to the issues, which were blamed on the club’s previous administration.
The Samoan international said: “It has a painful period for me and my family, so to see it coming to an end is fantastic.
“I would like to thank everyone who has helped me through the process. I am speechless at the moment.
“I feel like I have been handed back my career and I cannot wait to get out there on the field.
“I have been keeping myself as fit as possible, so it will be just a case of getting a little match practice under my belt and kicking on for the remainder of the season.”
