Hull KR on verge of signing Lui

Hull KR are finally set to land Robert Lui according to Hull Live.

The Robins have pursued the player for 18 months and after failing in two previous attempts to sign him, it seems they could finally get their man at the end of this season.

Off-contract players can discuss their future with other clubs from Wednesday and it appears Rovers have wasted no time in catching Lui’s attention.

The 29-year-old is reportedly flattered by the constant interest from East Hull and has already told current club Salford that he will leave at the end of the current campaign.

Although the Red Devils are keen to keep Lui, who has struck up a lethal half-back partnership with Jackson Hastings, they are resigned to losing him.

After seven years in the NRL, Salford signed Lui from North Queensland Cowboys in 2016 and he has gone on to make over 100 appearances for the club.

Hull KR are notably short of halves beyond this season with Danny McGuire set to retire, while both Chris Atkin and Josh Drinkwater are yet to agree new deals.

Therefore Lui’s potential arrival at Craven Park will likely be greeted by warm approval by Rovers supporters.
