Former Sheffield Eagles half-back Simon Brown has become the latest player to join the growing Dewsbury Rams squad.
Brown becomes the sixth Rams signing in just over a week, following Matt Nicholson, Jack Wray, Liam Johnson, Jordan Andrade and Wednesday’s announcement that second rower Danny King had been tempted to join from the amateur game.
Brown was a product of the Leeds Rhinos Academy and having had a spell on loan at Doncaster, he then spent three seasons in a first stint at Sheffield Eagles, where he scored 468 points in 61 games.
Brown went on play for York City Knights, Halifax, a brief spell on loan at Batley Bulldogs and Hunslet Hawks.
The 29-year-old re-joined Sheffield in 2017, where he scored 158 points in 28 games and although he then left the Eagles, Brown decided to come out of retirement to play a further 15 games for the South Yorkshire side in 2018.
Brown joins Dewsbury needing just four appearances to top 200 for his career, during which time he has scored a total of 1,044 points from 490 goals and 16 tries.
