Featherstone Rovers star halfback secures new club for 2023

Former Featherstone Rovers halfback Ryley Jacks’ club for 2023 has been confirmed.

He left the Rovers after one year and after the club missed out on promotion to Super League.

Jacks is now back with the Suzuki Brisbane Tigers Hostplus Cup side signing until the end of the 2024 season.

Jacks is former of the club and speaking of his return to the club, the Eastern Suburbs Tigers junior said “I’m very grateful that Brian Torpy (CEO) and the Club let me go over to the UK and play with Featherstone.

“I always wanted to go play in England.”

“It was a really enjoyable experience on and off the field with my young family.

“Being one of the older heads in the team I look forward to leading the young group and sharing my experiences with them, like the older players did for me.”

“I’ve also known Churchie (new head coach Matt Church) for a while now.”

“He has done a great job with the Hunters and will do a great job here at Easts”, Jacks added.

Jacks and fellow halfback Morgan Smith have both left Post Office Road going into 2023 with Smith headed to Wakefield Trinity.

Former Leeds Rhinos assistant Sean Long has taken over as Featherstone boss Brian McDermott and joined by his former St Helens teammate Leon Pryce.

He has already signed the likes of former Wigan Warriors man Chris Hankinson for 2023 but more signings are expected.
