Coventry Bears Sign Joe Prior

The club would like to congratulate Joe Prior who has secured a professional contract with Coventry Bears, we wish you the very best of luck in your new venture!

Tom Tsang from Coventry Bears had this to say about Joe :-

“After a couple of our pre-season targets for the halfback position didn’t come off, we were on the look out for another creative player to add depth and competition. Joe will certainly add to the talent we already have, having spent time with Wigan u19s and Leigh Centurion’s. Recently he has been a regular in the famous Wigan St Patricks NCL side. From what we have seen so far in training he has a good ‘rugby brain’ plus he is a great talker on the field and tough in defence. We will be giving first opportunity to the players who have been training with us since November, but I am sure Joe will be pushing them all the way once the season gets going.”
