Featherstone Rovers have confirmed the signing of Kyle Evans.
The winger joined Wakefield Trinity last year and scored on debut and more than caught the eye for the reserves throughout the season.
With strength, speed and athleticism he has every attribute a modern winger could wish to have.
He caught the eye even more at the Rugby League World Cup.
He produced some brilliant tackles against some of the world’s best attacking players when Wales met Tonga at St Helens’ Totally Wicked Stadium.
He also scored a superb try that day picking up on an error and weaving throughout the scattered Tongan defenders to score one of the better tries of the tournament.
This led to discussion over why he hadn’t nailed down a club yet for 2023.
Widnes Vikings boss and Wales boss John Kear questioned why Wakefield hadn’t kept him on for the new season and Wakefield’s loss is now Featherstone’s gain ahead of the new season.
Speaking exclusively to Serious About Rugby League earlier this year, he thanked Wakefield for the opportunity and explained his exit:
“When I went to Wakefield I was hoping for them to resign me but sadly that didn’t happen. The season ended and I never heard anything back after that.
“However, I’m appreciative of the opportunity they gave me, as that move to the club is what has given me my chance playing in rugby league and led me onto playing in the World Cup which has all been a dream come true.
“I needed to play well in the World Cup for a chance to get signed up by clubs, and I was happy with the performances I did put in.
“I was just getting started and warmed up looking towards another season in rugby league, and I know I’ve got a lot left to give.”
