Remember Jamie Foster? Well he’s back in Rugby League

Former Bradford and St Helens three-quarter Jamie Foster has come out of retirement to sign a one-year deal with Workington.

Town boss Leon Pryce is hoping he can rekindle the 27-year-old’s love for the sport after he turned his back on the game last year.

Foster, who has appeared in two Super League Grand Finals for Saints, amassed well over 1000 points during his previous stint in the game.

He has also played for Hull FC, Huddersfield Giants and Featherstone, as well as having a short spell with Hull Rugby Union.

Pryce, a former teammate of Foster, said: “He has just turned 27 so he is still young and he maybe feels like he has something to prove and that’s what I want to see.

“I want him to get back to loving the game. Let’s not forget this is a lad who has played in grand finals and was right at the top of Super League.

“He’s fantastic, he has got a great work ethic and I know him up close as a person. He is a good goal kicker and is versatile, so he can play at full-back, centre or wing, so he fits in perfectly.”
