Bradford snap up Hull KR forward on loan

Bradford have signed Hull KR forward Adam Rooks on a season-long loan for 2020.

The 19-year-old made six appearances for Rovers last season after graduating through the City of Hull Academy.

He has also represented Yorkshire and England at academy level in the last 12 months, and follows Rovers teammate Rowan Milnes in making the temporary move to the Bulls.

“I am buzzing to get going and get some regular game time at Championship level which is a really good competition and I am looking forward to helping Bradford,” he told the Bulls’ website.

“Having watched Bradford over the years even dropping down the divisions the fans have still been there through it all, they are a proper fanbase and I cannot wait to get going.”

Bradford head coach John Kear added: “Adam is a really good, energetic player – we have been keeping tabs on him since he played for the City of Hull Academy last year and we had a spot available for a loan player.

“Hull Kingston Rovers feel it will develop him, Adam feels it will develop him in playing rugby and it will develop us having quality second-row forward.”
