KEIGHLEY Cougars have signed former England international Darrell Griffin for the rest of the season.

The former Wakefield Trinity and Leeds Rhinos prop has joined Cougars following a brief spell in rugby union with Morley following his departure from the Featherstone Rovers in January.

He has also played for Harlequins Rugby Union before moving on to join the Huddersfield Giants where his performances earned him an England call-up for the 2010 Four Nations where he would go on to earn two caps for his country.

In 2012, Griffin joined the Rhinos and in his sole season at Headingley won both the World Club Challenge and Super League, coming off the interchanges bench in both games, and was also a part of the side that lost that season’s Challenge Cup Final.

Griffin then joined the Salford Red Devils following their takeover by Marwan Koukash and spent three seasons at the AJ Bell Stadium before leaving the club and dropping down a division to sign with Featherstone Rovers.

In both his seasons in Featherstone, Griffin helped the club achieve back-to-back top four finishes in the Championship which allowed Rovers to compete in The Qualifiers for promotion into the Super League.

The veteran forward will wear Cougars' number 35 jersey and will be in contention for Sunday’s Betfred League One visit to Oldham Roughyeds.
