Cougars Swoop For Darrell Griffin

Keighley Cougars are this morning delighted to announce the signing of Darrell Griffin for the remainder of the 2018 season.

The former England international arrives at Cougar Park following a brief spell in Rugby Union with Morley following his departure from the Featherstone Rovers in January.

The Oxfordshire born Prop began his career with Wakefield Trinity after joining from 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 Leeds 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.

Darrell then joined the Salford Red Devils following their takeover by Marwan Koukash and would spend 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 Cougars can confirm we have allocated the veteran forward the number 35 jersey and that he will be in contention for Sunday’s Betfred League One visit to Oldham.

The club are delighted to secure Darrell’s services for the remainder of the season and we look forward to seeing him in action for the Cougars.
