Gadwin Springer extends stay at Featherstone Rovers

Former Castleford Tigers and Catalans Dragons prop Gadwin Springer has locked in his club for 2023.

Springer, a French-Guianan born forward, has put pen to paper on a contract extension at Featherstone Rovers which extends his stay at the club until at least the end of the 2023 season.

The hulking prop joined the West Yorkshire club midway through the 2022 campaign having done the same thing last year before joining Toulouse Olympique ahead of their one and only Super League season.

Rovers CEO Martin Vickers commented; “We’re pleased to have secured Gadwin’s services for another year.

“Gadwin has made a significant impact for the club since joining midway through the season and become a real favourite with our fans, he seems to getting stronger and stronger with each game and we are really excited about the impact he can make for the Club in 2023.”

Springer was also over the moon about putting pen to paper on a new deal, saying: “I’m really pleased to be staying at Fev for another year, it’s my second stint at the club and I’m really happy here.

“I’m looking forward to putting in the hard work at the end of this season to help us reach our Super League ambition for 2023.”

Springer signed for Toulouse Olympique back in November last year, just a month after it was announced he would be joining Elite One Championship side Villeneuve.

The French-Guianan prop actually came through the Toulouse academy before joining the Catalans Dragons where he made his debut in Super League back in 2014.

Finding his chances at the Stade Gilbert Brutus limited, Springer made a high profile move to the Castleford Tigers.

At the West Yorkshire club, Springer played nearly 60 games in three seasons with the Tigers, before ending up on the periphery under then head coach Daryl Powell.

His next destination was the Toronto Wolfpack whom he helped climb to Super League at the end of the 2019 season.

After a shortened year in 2020, he returned to the Championship competition this year with Halifax, then Featherstone who recruited him during the summer.

Springer’s signature follows the news that Joey Leilua, Mark Kheirallah and Johnathon Ford have signed on the dotted line at Featherstone.
