PAPUA New Guinea international Thompson Teteh has joined Featherstone Rovers for the 2019 season.
The 29-year-old centre was part of the Kumuls 2017 World Cup squad and PNG’s gold medal winning rugby league nines team at the 2015 Pacific Games.
Featherstone Rovers general manager Davide Longo said: “We are delighted to have brought Thompson Teteh in for the 2019 season.
“He is a player who we have been monitoring for a couple of years and has received attention from a number of Super League clubs.
“Alongside Ase and Watson Boas, he will add an element of international class to next year’s squad.
“He is an exciting and powerful player, who has experience at the highest level.
“The addition of those qualities to the Championship exposure of our recruits from Batley and the enthusiastic hunger of the Academy stars we have signed, means our team for next season is striking the perfect balance.
“We are not content yet though and will make further additions ahead of 2019.”
Teteh has been a teammate of fellow 2019 Rovers signings Ase and Watson Boas at both international level and for PNG Hunters, but has also gained experience at Redcliffe Dolphins, the Intrust Super Cup’s most successful side.
The signing of Teteh, makes him Featherstone Rovers’ second addition of the week, after the recruitment of Batley Bulldogs 2018 Players’ Player of the Year Brad Day was announced on Monday.
Teteh is set to join up with the rest of the Rovers squad in January 2019, subject to home office approval.
