Alex Brown: Winger moves from Hull KR to Leigh
Leigh have signed former Huddersfield and Batley winger Alex Brown from Hull KR.
Brown, 26, scored nine tries in 15 appearances in his first full season in Super League with Rovers in 2013 but his chances were likely to be limited next term following the Robins' move for Wakefield winger Ben Cockayne.
Leigh coach Paul Rowley said: "Alex will ensure there is massive competition within our backline and comes to the club with some obvious qualities.
"He is a powerful runner with plenty of pace who sets himself very high but achievable targets."
Brown has also had spells with Keighley and Rochdale as well as a brief stint in rugby union with Sale and scored two tries in the final of the 2010 Northern Rail Cup to help Batley to a shock win over Widnes.
