Workington Town have signed Australian second-row forward Kurt Horton from New South Wales Cup side Mounties for the 2015 Championship season.

Horton, 23, played at Under-20 level for National Rugby League side Penrith Panthers before joining Mounties.

He helped the Mount Pritchard club to the Ron Massey Cup final in October, but earned a three-match ban for his role in a first-half brawl.

In addition, he played 12 games in the NSW Cup, winning seven.

Town have already signed former Northern Pride forward Latu Fifita, Tom Walker and Jack Murphy.
