Featherstone Rovers have made two more signings in winger Scott Turner and second rower Steve Snitch.

Turner, 27, joins Rovers from Sheffield Eagles for whom he scored 17 tries in 30 appearances last season.

Former Castleford forward Snitch has signed for Featherstone on a permanent basis after joining them on loan from Doncaster last season.

Rovers coach Jon Sharp said: “Scott Turner was one of the first players on my list of recruits. He has a great attitude, good skill levels and his height, athleticism and ball skills will give us an added attacking dimension next season.

“I thought Steve Snitch dded a great deal of experience, composure and energy in the latter part of the season and contributed to the great run of wins culminating in lifting the Kingstone Press Championship Shield earlier this month.

“With just under a month until we report for training I’m happy with the way the squad is shaping up and am looking forward to getting to work with the players in pre-season.”

Turner is looking forward to playing for Featherstone.

He said: “I’m really pleased to be joining Rovers. Growing up in Cas I always admired Fev as a Club and knew what the team means to the fans. They were always winning silverware and I want to be a part of that and help them win some more.”

Snitch said: “I’m really happy to be joining the Club on a permanent basis. It was a breath of fresh air when I switched, especially moving to a side which won most of its games. I like the way Jon has introduced the youngsters to the first team and look forward to helping them develop.”
