BULLS' opening-day Championship opponents Featherstone have signed goal-kicking hooker Cameron King from Parramatta.

Rovers say they have beaten off stiff competition to secure the signature of the 27-year-old, who was in the St George Illawarra team that beat Wigan in the 2011 World Club Challenge.

King, who has also played for North Queensland Cowboys, is the first major signing for new Featherstone head coach Ryan Carr.

"I'm very excited to have Cameron joining our club for the 2019 season," said Australian Carr.

"He is a very talented hooker with plenty of NRL experience and will be a huge asset for us at Featherstone this year."

Bulls host Rovers at Odsal in their first league game of the new season on Sunday, February 3.
