New recruit Sam Brooks is hoping to make an impact in the team in the 2022 Betfred Championship season.

The 28-year-old was confirmed by the club earlier in October, adding size to the pack at the Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium.

Brooks was in the Wigan Warriors academy system before joining Halifax for the 2014 season.

He has also represented Rochdale, Whitehaven, Widnes, Featherstone and Swinton, and brings a wealth of Championship experience to the squad. 

“The decision to sign was an easy one,” he said.

“The club did well last season in getting promoted and they look like they have ambitions this season with some of the signings they’ve made. 

“Barrow are looking to make an impact in the Championship and it’s an exciting club to join.”

Brooks, who has won five caps for Scotland, is eyeing up a strong pre-season under Paul Crarey and is hoping for consistency in 2022. 

“Personal goals would be to be playing week in, week out. Hopefully I can be playing my best rugby and have a good impact on the team. 

“Hopefully collectively, we want to get as high as possible in the league. I’m sure the club want to go for a play-off spot and not just make the numbers up. That will be the main goal.

“It’s a tough league. There’s a lot of experienced players and a lot of players who have played Super League. There’s plenty of talent knocking around. 

“It’s definitely a tough league but hopefully we can get some good results next season.”
