Last season, a few clubs stirred up quite a fuss with redesigns of their badges.
Huddersfield and Salford both produced controversial redesigns following in the footsteps of Wigan who set the trend and Hull KR have now followed suit.
The Robins are enjoying a terrific season and are well in the hunt for play-off rugby. Clearly a club on the rise, next season they’ll step things up again with the arrival of signings like Lachlan Coote.
Thus 2022 should be a big year for the Rovers on the field as well as a historic year off the field. The club are set to celebrate their 140th anniversary and have subsequently taken this opportunity to redesign the badge as the East Hull club look towards the future which, with youngsters like Mikey Lewis and Rowan Milnes, should be bright. So, the tag line used appears incredibly apt: Rise Again.
On the eve of our 140th anniversary year, it's time to evolve and #RiseAgain

The new design honours the past maintaining the three crowns which have always gone down the centre of the badge. But this new look appears much brighter yet more simplistic allowing the history to shine through whilst being much more easily absorbed. There’s now a real focus on the name Hull KR at the top which replaces Hull Kingstone Rovers which featured on the old badge. The Robins have also taken this opportunity to rebrand on twitter under the much shorter name of Hull KR.
This promises to be the new beginning Hull KR want as they look to become the competitive force they once were in the 1980s.
