Featherstone Rovers win race to sign ex-Super League winger as Sean Long prepares for promotion battle

FEATHERSTONE ROVERS have added yet another new signing to their roster ahead of the 2023 Championship season in the shape of Rugby League World Cup winger and former Wakefield Trinity man Kyle Evans.

Evans has been without a club since the end of the 2022 season following his departure from Wakefield, however, the winger put in some massive performances during the World Cup, impressing potential suitors.

Now, Featherstone have got their man ahead of a battle for Super League promotion next season.

Featherstone head coach Sean Long has been impressed with what he’s seen of the winger.

“Kyle is a very determined and tenacious rugby player, he has set his mind on playing rugby league and has impressed in a short space of time.” Said Rovers boss Long.

“He will add some depth to our backs and brings valuable experience as an athlete in the XV game.”

Evans is equally as excited as Long and wants to earn promotion with Rovers: “I am very excited to play for Featherstone. They have provided an opportunity and share my ambition of playing in Super League, I’m determined to give it everything to reach that goal together.

“To be playing under the coaches such as Sean Long and Leon Pryce is an opportunity not to be missed, I could not ask for a better environment in which to develop as a player.”
