Hull KR confirm halfback signing

Hull KR have confirmed the signing of halfback Jamie Ellis on a one-year deal from Castleford.

The 30-year-old returns to the club after spending the 2017 season on loan, making 30 appearances and helping the club regain promotion to Super League.

The following year he signed for the Tigers and has featured 25 times since.

He has also had spells with Leigh, Hull and Huddersfield, after originally coming through the academy system at St Helens.

Head coach Tony Smith told the Rovers’ website: “Jamie probably does not fit into the main brief of our 2020 recruitment criteria in terms of being ‘young and ambitious’ but upon meeting him and listening to his passion for the club, having already played with this team, it was great to hear.

“He loved his time here, still loves the club and had a very strong desire to express that. He convinced me that he is really ambitious and wants to do his best here.”
