Hull KR man in line for potential Super League move as incoming boss Willie Peters overhauls squad

It’s fair to say that incoming Hull KR head coach Willie Peters is ready to put his own stamp on Craven Park before he even sets foot in the door.

A number of signings have already been made in the shape of Jesse Sue, Rhys Kennedy, Tom Opacic and James Batchelor, but there have also been as many as 11 outgoings.

One of those leaving Craven Park at the end of the season is towering prop Will Maher who has given KR good service over the past three years after moving from the Castleford Tigers.

His agent, Craig Harrison of Show Me The Money UK, hopes that Maher will move to a Super League side as that is what the Cumbrian prop wants.

“Will has got the size, he’s never injured and he’s durable,” Harrison said on The Full Eighty Minutes podcast.

“He’s not going to be that angry prop but he’s a very brave man to carry that first carry off his line.

“He’s great for the culture, he’s a fitness fanatic and I think he will get a Super League gig.

“He’s not asking for monopoly money, if not (a Super League move doesn’t come about) then we will talk and it will be Championship and someone who wants to go back to Super League because that’s what Will wants to do – he wants to play in Super League.”

Harrison also hopes that Maher gets the send off he deserves this Saturday when the Robins take on Hull FC in the Hull derby for the final time in the 2022 season.

“I’m sorry to see him go, and I hope Hull KR fans give him the standing ovation that he deserves as he always turned up and gave his all for that club.

“I hope Will gets a good send off.”

Where Maher’s next destination will be remains to be seen.
