Rovers sign Farrell from Wigan

Featherstone have signed Wigan forward Connor Farrell on loan until the end of the season.

Rovers beat Friday’s transfer deadline to land the 23-year-old, who has spent most of this season playing dual-reg for Swinton under John Duffy.

Speaking on Farrell’s arrival at the LD Nutrition Stadium, Duffy said: “We are pleased to have him on board for the rest of the season and look forward to integrating him into the team.

“I have worked with him in the past and he has plenty of top-flight experience, which will benefit us in the Qualifiers.”
