MATTY Wildie has overcome a career-threatening injury to take up his place in John Duffy’s squad for 2017.
Just a matter of weeks into his spell with the Rovers, Wildie was struck down by a serious knee injury, writing off his first season at The LD Nutrition Stadium.
However, he is now back, fit and and raring to go, looking to prove a key addition to Duffy’s roster, operating in the halves or at hooker.
Wildie, 26, began his career with Wakefield Trinity, making more than 30 appearances for the club across a four-year spell there.
During his time with Wakefield, he spent time away on loan as a Batley Bulldogs player, before being signed by Dewsbury Rams prior to the start of the 2015 campaign.
He was signed by Featherstone during the latter stages of that year and began pre-season training with the Rovers before the 2016 campaign came around.
