Ryan Returns to the Steel City
Sheffield Eagles are delighted to announce the signing of Ryan Millar on a two-year deal.
The Bielefeld-born winger first broke into the Sheffield first team at the end of the 2015 season after he came through the Eagles academy system. Miller rejoins the club as its sixth new signing ahead of the 2024 season, following the permanent arrivals of Mitch Clark, Eddie Battye, Matty Marsh, James Glover and Alex Foster.
The 29-year-old made over 110 appearances in his first stint with the Eagles and scored 54 tries. Following six seasons with the club, Millar moved to the Bradford Bulls in 2022 and played this season with Widnes Vikings.
Director of Rugby Mark Aston said: “We are delighted to have Ryan back on board at the club. He is a very talented player who we know all about. His power, pace and athleticism provide us with further competition out wide, and we are excited to welcome him back home.
"He is a brilliant try-scorer and one of the most dedicated and professional players I have coached. He does things that go under the radar, and those little things make a huge difference in the big moments.
“To have him back will be great for the group. He is already familiar with the coaching staff and most of the playing group, and it will be brilliant to see Ryan, Cory (Aston), Eddie Battye, and Blake Broadbent take the field next season in Sheffield."
