Barrow Raiders sign Leeds Rhinos scrum-half Sean Casey

Barrow Raiders have signed scrum-half Sean Casey from Leeds Rhinos for the 2013 Championship season.

Ireland international Casey, 19, is yet to make a Rhinos first-team appearance but has been a regular for the academy squad as a goalkicking half-back.

He was part of the Rhinos under-20 side beaten by Warrington in last month's under-20 Grand Final.

"The signing of Sean Casey is a great capture for the club," said Barrow director of rugby Andy Gaffney.
