Jamaican international Magrin signs for Sheffield
Sheffield Eagles can confirm Jon Magrin has signed for the club from Bradford Bulls.
With Championship experience under his belt from stints at London Broncos and Bradford, Magrin bolsters the Eagles forward pack and is the club's fourth new signing for the 2018 season.
The 23-year-old brings a powerful running game to the Olympic Legacy Park and a style of play which will excite fans.
The Jamaican international came through the ranks at London and made 60 appearances for the capital side in three years.
He then moved on to Bradford for 2017 and despite the club's financial woes, the prop forward stayed on at the Provident Stadium.
Magrin became a fixture for the West Yorkshire outfit, making 25 appearances and scoring twice.
Mark Aston has managed to bring the former Maltese international to the club and is looking forward to working with him.
Aston said: “It’s great to bring Jon in. He’s a proven try scorer and at just 23 is still developing and hopefully we can continue his development here at the Eagles.
“The word from Keith (Senior) is that he is training well and has integrated well with the group.
“I look forward to working with him on my return from Australia next week”
