Posted by

Featherstone Rovers have confirmed the signing of Louis Jouffret from Batley Bulldogs for the 2020 season.

Jouffret, a French international, initially came to England to play for Warrington as a junior.

He then left the club in 2015 and signed for Whitehaven a year later after a short stint in rugby union.

He then signed for French side Toulouse before joining Batley in 2018.

“Featherstone are a really good club in the Championship and I’ve always thought they are a tough team to play against so I’m excited to be playing for the team in 2020,” he said.

“I already know from coming here as an opposition player that Featherstone always get a big crowd. The fans really love Rugby League here and I can’t wait to play in front of them and show them what I am like as a player.

“I would say that I’m going to bring that French flair to the team. I am looking forward to playing with Dane Chisholm, he’s been fantastic for the Rovers this season. Hopefully we can work well together.”
