Fans are convinced their side have made one of the signings of the year

Hull KR have confirmed the club have secured the signature of New Zealand International, Peta Hiku on a three-year deal until the end of 2026.

A versatile back, Hiku has made 190 NRL appearances during his career in-between being capped 17 times for the revered, New Zealand international side.

Now in his second season with the North Queensland Cowboys, Hiku joined the side ahead of the 2022 season and has made 36 appearances, helping the side to a 70%-win rate when on the field.

Able to play at halfback, centre and fullback, the 30-year-old helped the Cowboys to an NRL Preliminary Grand Final last season, falling one win short of an NRL Grand Final before playing in all of the Kiwis’ Rugby League World Cup games last Autumn.

No stranger to the Betfred Super League, Hiku joined the Warrington Wolves on a short-term deal at the back end of the 2017 season, scoring 10 tries in 11 appearances for the Wire.

A dangerous ball-runner with the ability to influence games around the field, Peta is delighted to be joining the Robins for 2024: ‘It’s exciting the way the club have been going this year and what Willie (Peters) has been talking about with how the club’s building too, it’s exciting to be a part of it.’

Meanwhile, Hull KR fans are convinced that this is one of the biggest signings going into the 2024 Super League season.

One fan pointed out that it is rare that New Zealand internationals make the move to Super League.

This was echoed by another fan who branded it as “an unbelievable signing.”

It was seen as a statement signing by others:

Another fan hinted that the Robins aren’t done with their recruitment either with the Robins expected to sign former Wigan Warriors star Oliver Gildart.

Another Robins fan believed it showed the intent of the club.

It is certainly a huge coup for the Robins.
