Championship club completes impressive Australian signing

Swinton Lions have announced the signing of Joseph ”Joey” Romeo.

Joey was initially in the youth set up at North Sydney Bears, but has more recently played at a couple of other clubs in the greater Sydney region – Cabramatta and the Campbelltown City Kangaroos.

On this impressive signing from down under, The Lions’ Head Coach, Allan Coleman, said: “Joseph is a player on a mission and he has come to us highly recommended. We have reviewed footage of his performances in detail, and he’s clearly a clever and skilful individual who thinks outside of the box. He prefers full-back, but can pretty much cover the whole back-line.

“Having spoken to Joseph, he is a player with huge ambition who wants reach the top of the game. He certainly has bags of talent and I can’t wait to see him in our famous blue and white jersey.”

The club have done a lot of impressive business as they return to the Championship in 2023.

The big question is: will this be enough to secure their survival and could they even push on further and challenge for a play-off spot following the example set by Barrow Raiders in 2022?

On this front, time will certainly tell.
