Featherstone acquire Italian duo

Featherstone Rovers have signed Italian duo Alec Susino and Dean Parata as they continue to strengthen for the 2020 season.

Susino has joined on a one-year deal after spending the past two seasons with Barrow for whom he appeared on 51 occasions. Parata also featured for the Raiders in 2018 before helping Toulouse Olympique to 2nd place this season, appearing 26 times. 

Susino said: “I’m excited and nervous about joining the Rovers but I’m looking forward to it.

“It will be a new challenge over to Yorkshire though, so it’ll be good. It’s been good playing for Barrow, it gave me chance to get used to the Championship. It’s a bit more physical over here.” 

Featherstone Rovers travel to York City Knights on Saturday 21st September (3pm) in the Betfred Championship play-offs with both sides looking to take another step towards promotion to the Betfred Super League.
