Gavin Rodden – from Crusader to Lion!

03 November 2022

We are thrilled to announce the signing of the former North Wales Crusaders second-rower, Gavin Rodden. Wigan-based Gavin came through the ranks at Wigan St Jude’s before entering the professional game with Crusaders.

Gavin has been one of League 1’s stand-out performers in recent seasons, and was a transfer target for a number of other clubs as well as the Lions. Although a forward, he has the pace of a back and boasts a prolific try-scoring record, and we feel sure he will become a big favourite with the Swinton faithful in 2023!

Look out for the interview we conducted with Gavin when he recently called in to take a look around our AJ Bell Stadium training base.
