Sam Forrester has signed for Workington Town after taking a break from the game.
Forrester had a year away from Rugby League but the thought of working under former Great Britain star Leon Pryce tempted him to return.
He played at Derwent Park for two years under then head coach Phil Veivers but decided to have a break from the professional ranks for the 2017 season.
The former Maryport amateur player is quite a decorated player in the amateur game, having represented England Community Lions Under-18s and touring South Africa and Lebanon with the squad.
He was also in the BARLA open-age squad that toured Australia.
And Forrester admitted that he is looking forward to working under the recently appointed Town boss Pryce.
He said: “When I was at the club last time I couldn’t get a good run of games together and picked up a few niggly injuries so I’m looking to rectify that.
“After talking to the board and where they are looking to go with the club, I wanted to be part of it.
“I’m really excited to be working with Leon Pryce as he has achieved so much in the game and I’m really looking forward to getting started in pre-season.”
