Halifax sign Hull KR full-back Kieren Moss on loan till end of season

Betfred Championship club Halifax have announced the signing of Hull Kingston Rovers full-back Kieren Moss on loan until the end of the season.

Moss signed for the Robins last year following a debut campaign with Bradford Bulls in 2016.

Limited game time for the East Yorkshire club saw the full-back/winger go to York City Knights where he had a great spell on dual-registration, scoring 14 tries in ten outings.

Moss scored a hat-trick for Rovers against same-city rivals Hull FC at Magic Weekend but was unable to nail down a regular spot with head coach Tim Sheens preferring the likes of Justin Carney.

Following the departure of Quentin Laulu-Togagae to Castleford, Halifax boss Richard Marshall is delighted to have found a replacement.

“Kieren’s been in and around Super League for the last couple of years,” he said.

“We played against him at Bradford and he has always impressed me, whether that be playing at full-back or on the wing.

“When the opportunity came to bring Kieren to the club, we jumped at it. He obviously fills the void after QLT left and we acted swiftly to do that to secure him on loan to club until until the end of the season.

“We have to thank the LS28 Supporters Group who have helped contribute to this deal and to Mike Smith (Hull KR CEO) for agreeing to the deal. He brings pace, skill and a fantastic try scoring record.

“Kieren will bring a good skill set, he’s also fast – really quick – and brings versatility as he can play either wing or at full-back. He’s a quality player who comes to the line well and we want him to organise our defence also.”
