Sammut is the second Australian half-back to make the move from the Wildcats to Featherstone, who took Harry Siejka on loan earlier this month.

Rovers coach Andy Hay said: “I’m delighted that Jarrod has joined the club and he will go straight into the 17 on Sunday. He will add significant quality and experience to our side.”

Meanwhile, Rovers second row forward Liam Walsmley and centre/winger Lewis Price have both joined Hunslet Hawks for a month’s loan.
