KEIGHLEY Cougars have signed former England under-18 and under-20 rugby union winger Taylor Prell.

The 22-year-old joins on a two-year contract, having been released by Warrington Wolves last season.

Prell, based in Silsden, made the cross-code switch to Wolves in 2017, having signed from Yorkshire Carnegie for whom he made 34 appearances.

But the Wharfedale RUFC product never made a first-team appearance for Warrington, though he has some experience of playing in League One during a loan spell with North Wales Crusaders. He also played on dual registration with Rochdale.

Speaking about the latest recruit, Keighley Head of Rugby Gary Moorby said: "We are excited to have secured the signing of 22 year old Taylor.

"He has an impressive pedigree in rugby union having played at international level for England.

"We are confident he will fit in well with the future plans at Cougar Park, as a winger or fullback he is a great addition to the squad."
