Sheffield Eagles have announced their 2023 squad numbers, with new recruit Jesse Sene-Lefao set to wear number 27 for the upcoming Championship campaign. 

The 33-year-old joined on a two-year deal from Featherstone during the off-season. He made 16 appearances last year for Rovers, having made the move from Castleford.

Sene-Lefao played 109 games in five seasons with the Tigers, helping the club clinch the League Leaders’ Shield in 2017.

Lewis Peachey, who made the switch at the end of 2022 on a three-year deal from Castleford, will wear shirt number 20 at the Olympic Legacy Park in 2023.

Head coach Mark Aston has added plenty new faces to his squad for the 2023 Championship season. Oliver Roberts makes the move from Newcastle Thunder and will wear shirt number 24.

Meanwhile, Aaron Murphy and Matty Dawson-Jones both made the switch from Bradford and will wear shirt numbers 18 and 28 respectively.

Cory Aston returns to the club with shirt number 32, the final one on the list. Meanwhile, half-back Jack Hansen will wear number 19 following his move from Swinton.

Captain Anthony Thackeray took a U-turn on his retirement decision to extend his contract by one more-year with the club.

Titus Gwaze is also among the new players at the squad and has received shirt number 14.
