Rochdale Hornets have completed the signing of Ben Calland from Oldham, the brother of Head Coach Matt.
Ben is a former St Helens and Wigan scholar. He has also spent time at Salford Red Devils and Newcastle Thunder.
He told the club website:”I’m really happy to get the opportunity to play for a side coached by my brother.”
“It’s something we had always spoken about, but not something I thought that would come to fruition.
“I just want to enjoy what I’m doing and I think a move here and back into my natural position in the centres will help me do that.”
On the signing, Matt Calland added: “Ben is a big, strong centre who I’ve obviously watched play from a very young age.
“He has been at St Helens, Wigan and Salford as a youngster and I am looking forward to helping him improve and develop.”
