Darcy Lussick has joined Featherstone Rovers on an initial two-week loan deal from Betfred Super League outfit Salford Red Devils.
Lussick joined Salford ahead of the 2021 season after previously representing Toronto Wolfpack in the Betfred Super League and in their promotion-winning season in the Betfred Championship.
The prop-forward had previously racked up over 100 appearances in the NRL after spells with Manly Sea Eagles and Parramatta Eels.
On the move, Lussick said: “I’m really excited to be joining such a strong club and contributing as best I can. I can’t wait to get out there and play my first game for the Rovers.”
Featherstone Head Coach, James Webster, added: “Darcy will bring some added depth to an area where we are currently a bit thin. With [James] Harrison, [Jack] Bussey, [Brett] Ferres and [Dale] Ferguson all unavailable as well as Luke Cooper just coming back from injury, it’s added a lot of extra pressure on our other middles.
“Obviously Darcy has played at a high level in both the NRL, and Super League and we look forward to him joining us for the next two weeks.”
Lussick could debut for Featherstone – live on Our League – this Sunday against Bradford Bulls. You can get a pass to watch the game here.
