Leeds Rhinos have completed the signing of young utility back Zak Hardaker from Featherstone Rovers.

The 19-year-old has scored 22 tries in 14 games this season, climaxing in a brace against Halifax in the 23-22 Championship Grand Final defeat.

"Zak is one of the most exciting young talents in our game," said Rhinos chief executive Gary Hetherington.

"This signing is one for the future and was funded from the fee received from Canterbury Bulldogs for Greg Eastwood."
