Featherstone Rovers add former Super League forward to their ranks

Featherstone Rovers have been building heavily for the 2022 Super League season with the likes of Jesse Sene-Lefao and Joey Leilua joining the ‘Blue Wall.’

That roster has now been added to it with the capture of Super League forward Kyle Trout.

The 30-year-old spent last season playing for French side Limoux Grizzlies and second-tier outfit Newcastle Thunder, but is no stranger to the Millennium Stadium having had spells at Rovers in 2014 and 2015, on dual registration from Wakefield Trinity.

Trout had played for Hull KR in the top flight but left the club at the end of the 2020 season.

Alongside Sene-Lefao and Leilua, Leigh Centurions duo pair Ben Hellewell and Matty Wildie have also penned deals with Featherstone while Leeds Rhinos winger Luke Briscoe has returned to the club.

Brandon Pickersgill has made the switch from Bradford Bulls with York City Knights half-back Morgan Smith making the move also.

New Featherstone boss Brian McDermott has been putting a squad together that he believes can earn promotion to Super League after a number of years of heartache for the second tier side.
