Rochdale Hornets have completed the coup signing of hooker Sean Penkywicz.

“I am looking forward to a new challenge,” he said.

“To work with Matt Calland again was a major draw. Having worked with him before, I know he’ll be working hard to put out a competitive team.”

Calland added: “Sean is a class player with a wealth of experience having played over 350 professional games.

“I am really looking forward to working with him again. He is a real character and a match winner.”
