Barrow sign St Helens half-back Dom Speakman

Barrow have signed St Helens half-back Dom Speakman on a one-year deal.

The 19-year-old joins the Championship club having made one appearance for Saints, coming off the bench against Salford in last season's Super League.

Speakman, who can also play at hooker, represented the England Academy side last season.

"He's someone who talks a lot on the field and I'm sure that will come out naturally once he's settled in here," said Barrow coach Anthony Murray.
