Huge Super League signing can leave club immediately in new agreement

Plenty of transfer stories are making the rounds and many have been confirmed such as Wigan Warriors signing former Leeds Rhinos and Huddersfield Giants star Kruise Leeming or indeed Hull FC prop Chris Satae’s move to Catalans Dragons but one of the busier clubs have been Hull KR.

The Robins have signed former Warrington Wolves star Peta Hiku, former Wigan Warriors man Oliver Gildart and former Castleford Tigers target AJ Wallace from Bradford Bulls.

But they have also had to be active in the immediate term with the Robins signing former Leeds and Hull fullback Jack Walker from Bradford Bulls as well as briefly loaning in Tanguy Zenon and Fouad Yaha from Catalans after Lachlan Coote’s injury and Ryan Hall’s minor surgery.

Coote’s injury gave them cap space and a quota spot which is now set to be used on Brad Schneider from Canberra Raiders on a short term deal.

The Raiders confirmed his release just before midnight last night.

However, Raiders boss Ricky Stuart has revealed an interesting part of the deal that could see him leave Craven Part immediately at any point.

“We’ve protected ourselves so if there’s an urgent need to bring Brad back there’s an agreement by both clubs that he’s allowed to come straight back home,” Stuart said to the Canberra Times.

“Yes, he does create depth here in an important position to the team, but you’ve also got to look at his short-term future, and that could be playing in a semi-final in the Challenge Cup [on July 23].

“So when it was put forward to us through Brad’s management, we really sat down and had a good look at it from our point of view and also from Brad’s point of view, because we do want to keep flourishing the future for Brad by giving him this opportunity.”
