Hull KR have signed Greg Richards from London Broncos for 2022. The 26 year-old has signed a one-year deal with the option for a second year.
An experienced prop, Richards previously won the 2014 Super League Grand Final with St. Helens and has since gone on to make over 140 career appearances for Leigh Centurions, Sheffield Eagles and London Broncos.
Tony Smith was delighted to get Richards to Hull College Craven Park for 2022: “I’m looking forward to working with Greg, I’ve coached against him on many occasions and he’s a very experienced young prop and he fits the brief for a lot of what we’re about.
“He’s 26-year-old, so he’s coming into his prime with a wealth of experience. He had great experience as a young prop in winning a grand final with St. Helens and it’s a chance for him to get his Super League career back on track after a couple of years of working in London and playing for London.
“He’s a very skilful prop – he can pass the ball, he’s got a good work rate and his knowledge of the game is comprehensive so he will add more depth to our squad and competition for places amongst our prop forwards for next year.”
