Cornwall RLFC have signed Jamaica international and winger Aaron Jones-Bishop.
Jones-Bishop, 32, is the younger brother of Sheffield’s Ben and joins following his departure from Hunslet.
He joins the League 1 side for the remainder of the 2022 campaign, having found game time hard to come by under Alan Kilshaw.
Jones-Bishop is vastly experienced at League 1 level having previously played for Doncaster, Oxford, Oldham and most recently Hunslet.
Cornwall RLFC boss on new signing
“I am over the moon to have signed Aaron Jones-Bishop,” said Cornwall head coach Neil Kelly.
“He is a fantastic acquisition to our squad. The wing position is now more vital in rugby league than it’s ever been.
“A winger is integral to a team’s tactics and gameplay and gone are the days of a winger being a quick bloke who you gave the ball to and he would score tries.
“Aaron is an intelligent footballer. I know he can’t wait to get started. With Aaron looking forward to possible selection for Jamaica at the World Cup, his signing is an added bonus for us.
“If he goes well for Cornwall, there is a real possibility that we could have our first ever international player selected whilst playing for our club. With that in mind, Aaron’s signing could prove to be a landmark one for Cornwall rugby league club.”
The club also extended the loan signing of half-back Adam Rusling until the end of the current campaign. The teen initially joined the Choughs on a short-term deal for two weeks last month.
He made his Cornwall debut against West Wales Raiders and also featured against Swinton. The 19-year-old made his professional debut for Castleford in Super League against Salford in 2021.
