Former Hull KR halfback Terry Campese has come out of retirement after last playing for the Robins in 2016.
The experienced halfback spent a decade at Canberra Raiders prior to joining Hull KR in 2015 where he and Albert Kelly formed a formidable halfback pairing that helped guide the Robins to the Challenge Cup Final in 2015 where they were unfortunately beaten by Leeds Rhinos 50-0.
His last game at the top level was the Million Pound Game defeat to Salford Red Devils in 2016 which saw Hull KR relegated.
The halfback has come out of retirement to join Eden Tigers in 2023 joining former Bradford Bulls man and his former Canberra teammate Adrian Purtell at the club.
