Brad Takairangi’s time at Hull KR is officially over.
The versatile star who has played centre, stand-off and second-row for the Robins was a real star in 2021 and at the heart of Hull KR’s second highest Super League finish and their first ever semi-final appearance in the play-offs.
However, a drink driving charge for an incident in January which led to 300 hours of community service saw his career at Craven Park fizzle out.
Now it’s time for him to look to the future, but he first wanted to take to Instagram to reflect on his time at Hull KR and thank those who made the move possible.
He said: “Now that my rehab is complete it officially brings me to the end of my 2 seasons with Hull KR.
“I just want to say Thank you to Tony, Neil, Paul and the club for giving me the opportunity to play for KR and for all the support you guys have given me.
“Thank you to the brothers I played with the last 2 years and I wish you guys all the best for next year. Thank you to Sue and Bonesy for all the work you guys do behind the scenes. Thank you to the loyal KR fans who turn up week in week out, there are some awesome memories.
“Thank you also to our sponsors (a massive Thank you to Big Ben, Alex, Liam and Liz for allowing me to work with you guys and complete my 300 hours of community service. It’s been so good to see so many different smiles on so many different faces).”
As he admitted that it wasn’t the ending he dreamt of at Hull KR, he revealed that his future is up in the air: “It wasn’t the ending I was after but I do believe we made some great strides and memories especially in 2021. Thank you all Let’s see what the future holds.”
It remains to be seen whether we will see Takairangi in Super League again.
