Rovers catch Tiger Carey

The impressive off-season recruitment drive of UK club Featherstone Rovers continues; with the announcement of the arrival of Easts Tigers back Conor Carey.

Carey was a key member of the Intrust Super Cup team in season 2018, with performances that helped the Coorparoo-based club earn their way into the Intrust Super Cup grand final.

The Ormeau Shearers junior joined Easts from the Townsville Blackhawk before the 2017 season and played 20 games that year.

He improved on that number last season with 21 appearances for the Tigers where he crossed the line for nine tries.

Carey’s signing comes off the back of announcement of NRL player Cameron King’s arrival at the Championship division club; who have also snared the services of key PNG Hunters trio Ase Boas, Watson Boas and Thompson Teteh.

All three have plenty of experience to bring to the Yorkshire-based club; and are sure to excite their fans with their contributions on the field.

Featherstone Rovers head coach Ryan Carr spoke to the club’s website about the Queensland junior representative's impending arrival at the club where he will link with his fellow Intrust Super Cup cohorts.

“(Carey has) played opposite Thompson (Teteh) and was in the academy ranks when Cameron (King) was at North Queensland Cowboys. I’m sure he’ll fit really well into the squad," Carr said.

“He’s a good young kid who’s hungry to be better and he wants to come over here and take this opportunity, so I’m happy to have him.”
