Gadwin Springer has been snapped in his new club colours for the first time following a move from Featherstone Rovers.
It was initially announced that the rampaging prop would be joining Elite One Championship side Villeneuve, until the reneged on the deal to sign for Toulouse Olympique in what will be their first season in the top flight.
Springer had been confirmed as a Villeneuve player in October but has now chosen to come back to Super League.
The French-Guianan prop actually came through the Toulouse academy before joining the Catalans Dragons where he made his debut in the Super League in 2014.
Confined to the Catalans reserve team, he then went to Castleford. The French forward played nearly 60 games in three seasons with the Tigers, before taking ending up on the periphery at the Jungle, helping the Toronto Wolfpack 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.
Villeneuve agreed to the release to allow Springer to join.
The 28-year-old said: “New colors 🔵⚪️ Grateful for the opportunity.”
