Hull KR complete major halfback transfer effective immediately

Hull KR signing Ben Reynolds

Hull KR have confirm the signing of Ben Reynolds on a two-year deal from Featherstone Rovers with immediate effect.

A Challenge Cup winner with Leigh Leopards, Ben will add depth and quality to the Robins’ halfback ranks, alongside Tyrone May and Mikey Lewis.

A fierce competitor on the field, the 30 year-old is known for unlocking defences with his dangerous footwork and his pinpoint accuracy with the boot, from in play and from the tee.

Having made 59 Super League appearances so far, the Pontefract-born half returns to the top flight with the Robins as Willie Peters completes his trio of halfbacks for the 2024 season.

Speaking on his move to Hull KR, Ben Reynolds said: ‘I’m really looking forward to linking up with the boys. I’m really grateful for the opportunity. The club has gone above and beyond to get me here, hopefully I can repay them on the field.’

Hull KR delighted with Ben Reynolds signing

Hull KR‘s newest half is looking forward to linking up with Tyrone May and Mikey Lewis in East Hull: ‘They’ve both been playing great, first two weeks and two wins. They’re two established Super League players too so I’m looking forward to learning from them as well.

Having spoken with Willie Peters, Reynolds is looking forward to getting started with Hull KR and playing in front of the Red Army as a home player at Sewell Group Craven Park : ‘I had a couple of chats with him, he’s made me feel wanted and he wants me to come bring my stamp to the team. I can’t wait to get started, learn on the way and give back to the club.

‘Every time I’ve been there it’s been hard as an away player. I’m really looking forward to running out in front of the fans as a home player, having them behind us and giving my all for the club.’

Hull KR Head Coach, Willie Peters said: ‘It’s great to welcome Ben to the club. We’ve been looking for a halfback for a while and we had our eye on Ben. We certainly know what he’s capable of from last year. We played against him in the Challenge Cup Final and he did a great job for Leigh.’

‘We’re really happy to finalise a deal with Ben. Ben’s played in some big games, like the Challenge Cup final last year and most of the season for Leigh, he’ll have gained a lot of experience from that.

‘He’s a smart halfback with a good kicking game but what I like most about him is he’s a competitor and he’ll work hard for his teammates.’
