WILL Milner has become Craig Lingard’s 11th new recruit after joining Cougars from Featherstone on a permanent basis.

Milner, a utility back most at home in the halves, originally joined Cougars on loan in early June.

He came into the first-team at the back end of June following an injury to Paul Handforth, making a total of eight appearances throughout the remainder of the 2016 season, scoring tries.
