Hull KR star set to be at the heart of transfer merry-go-round

Hull KR star signing Joe Burgess has a big decision on his future moving forward.

Burgess has joined the Robins ahead of the new season but only on a one year deal which leaves his future beyond 2024 up in the air.

It is understood that Burgess will have to wait a while to determine his future with he and the club set to see how things pan out.

The future of Ryan Hall is also key to that of Burgess. Hall is in the final year of his contract but is also at the twilight of his career.

Should he opt to retire, then Burgess re-signing could become a must though the club have reportedly moved for Tom Davies from Catalans Dragons for 2025. This comes with the Dragons also potentially set to lose Tom Johnstone to Wakefield Trinity and looking to sign Tommy Makinson from St Helens.

Either way, Joe Burgess has a big decision to make on his future.
