Hull Kingston Rovers have announced the signing of prop forward, Tom Garratt from Dewsbury Rams.
Signed for an undisclosed fee, Garratt arrives at Hull College Craven Park on a two-year deal from 2022. Standing at 6’5, the 26-year-old is relishing the challenge ahead and looking forward to linking up with the Robins next season.
Hull KR Head Coach, Tony Smith spoke to KRTV about the signing: “We’ve been really impressed with what form he’s in. He’s really stood up to a lot of rigours of the Championship and stood out.
“He’s a big strong, ambitious young man with some maturity – probably in his prime for a prop.
“(Tom) feels he’s ready for the full-time environment and wants to throw everything into becoming a full-time player and fulfilling his ambitions.
“He’s the right mould of what we’re looking for, to give us more depth and more go forward.
“I can’t see any reason why he won’t be a success at Super League level, we’ve identified that in his ability but also in his ambition and his drive.
“I’m really excited about the addition and what Tom’s going to bring to us.”
