FORWARD AND BACK FOR ROVERS.
Rovers have completed the signing of prop Ben Gledhill on a dual registration from Wakefield Wildcats, and back Nicky Saxton from Dewsbury Rams until the end of the season.
Head coach Daryl Powell welcomed the signings saying;
We are delighted to be able to strengthen the team with two quality additions. I'm thankful to Wakefield for allowing Ben to work with us on a dual registration, and I think it will be a mutually beneficial agreement, that will enhance Ben's playing career and our depth, when we have a number of injuries.
Ben trained with us yesterday and it's clear he has a lot to offer our club and I look forward to work with him in the coming weeks.
Of Saxton he said;
Nicky has been in and out of the game for a number of reasons, but has a lot to offer. He is quick and strong and similarly good on his feet to his brother Tommy. He will offer increased options in our backline. I welcome both Nicky and Ben to our club.
