Ex-Leeds Rhinos assistant Sean Long captures second Super League signing for Featherstone Rovers

Mathieu Cozza (L) of Catalans Dragons and Dean Whare (R) of Catalans Dragons celebrate victory in Super League

Earlier this week Sean Long made his first signing as Featherstone Rovers boss and now the former Leeds Rhinos assistant has added his second.

His first came in the shape of former Wigan centre Chris Hankinson who had previously starred at London and Toulouse.

Whilst at Toulouse in 2022 Hankinson showed his versatility in playing fullback and stand-off.

Long has again looked to France to bring in talent adding his second signing from Toulouse’s French rivals Catalans.

This comes in the shape of one of the many players the Dragons released at the end of the season as Long adds Catalans forward Mathieu Cozza to his 2023 squad.

On signing for the Rovers, Cozza told their website: “I’m really pleased to be joining Featherstone Rovers, I can’t wait to meet everyone and to get started and to do my best to help the club achieve its ambitions in 2023.”

Head Coach Sean Long commented; “I’m very pleased to add Mathieu to our group of players, Mathieu brings a lot of youth and energy, with the experienced heads in the pack, I’m confident that we can provide an environment for him to develop further as a forward.”
