Sheffield sign experienced prop

Sheffield have signed experienced forward Scott Wheeldon on a two-year deal from Featherstone.

The 33-year-old has played almost 300 professional games in his career, after making his debut for Hull FC in 2006.

He has since had spells with Hull KR, London Broncos, London Skolars, Castleford and Featherstone.

He also had a two-year stint with the Eagles between 2016 and 2017, and will now return to South Yorkshire for next season.

“I am happy to be back,” he told the Eagles’ club website. “I enjoyed my time with the Eagles when I was here before. Obviously I’ve spent a couple of years elsewhere then there was an opportunity to come back.

“I spoke to Tubbs (Mark Aston), he likes me as a player and a person so I’m more than happy to come on board. He has put a bit of trust in me with the age that I am at.

“He has seen videos of me playing and when he spoke to me, he says I’ve not got much slower! It’s nice he’s put that trust into me and I’ll be looking to repay that on the field.”
