Hull KR nail down forward’s long term future

It’s been a busy week for Super League including Hull KR.

The Robins are facing a nervous wait on two key players and will be working hard to ensure both are fit for Sunday’s huge Hull derby at the Magic Weekend which could determine which side is best placed for a play off spot.

Furthermore the Robins have a new man at the helm in interim boss Danny McGuire after he took the reigns from Tony Smith who was relieved of his duties on Monday.

McGuire will also be supported by former Leeds teammate Brett Delaney who was announced as the club’s forward coach yesterday.

Yesterday Hull KR took another important step in building for the future as they announced the signing of Louis Senior from Huddersfield.

Also in that building process, the Robins have today announced that forward Frankie Halton will remain at the club until 2025.

Highly thought of and with a great potential, it’s a good move from the Robins.

On his new deal, Halton said on the club website: “It’s a real relief. I can knuckle down now knowing I’m going to be here for the next few years and put all my energy into KR and get us to where we should be. I’m really excited about the next three years.

“In pre-season, I came in and got injured the first session back because I was carrying an injury. I missed the first month of pre-season and then the last month while all our friendlies were going on.

“Pre-season was up and down, but I got into the Wigan game on the back of a few injuries in the squad so I just took my chance and I’ve not looked back from there.”

The club have said that they’ve thought off NRL interest to keep the hard working back rower at the club making this a shrewd piece of business from the club in a big week for them.
