The Bears have signed former NRL Rookie contestant Luke Frixou who hails from Derby. 

Frixou who has had a high profile start to his rugby league career has been on the Clubs radar for a while and has recently become fit so the time was right to get him into the club.    

Luke is an exciting prospect and one I'm sure supporters will look forward to seeing play. 

Bears Tom Tsang commented;

"As a Midlands lad, Luke first came onto our radar last year when he was a finalist on the Australian reality tv show the NRL Rookie. He competed really strongly in that environment and came back to the UK to trials at Salford and Leigh. With him being so new to Rugby League, even he is unsure what position will suit him best in the long term. He has a big frame and is quick for his size. He could just as feasibly end up as a really strong running winger, or an atheltic, mobile loose forward. What is certain though is he has masses of potential so we will work with him to unlock that."

luke said;

"I'm really excited to have signed for Coventry Bears and restart my rugby league journey.

This opportunity has come at a great time for me so I feel I can really bring the best version of myself to the team and I'm confident I am at the right club to improve and become the best player I can.

Everyone has been very welcoming and I can genuinely say I've enjoyed every minute of training so far. I'm looking forward to learning from the coaches and the lads so I can be a part of a winning team.

I can't wait to get on the pitch!"
