Super League club let go of exciting duo as huge star set to replace them

Super League fullback Tanguy Zenon

Mid-season signings can change or define a season. Look at last year with Zak Hardaker at Leeds Rhinos or in previous years when the Rhinos have drafted in the likes of Rob Lui or even Ali Lauiti’iti. Wigan Warriors arguably only remained in Super League in 2006 because of mid-season business.

Sometimes a mid-season signing comes as a side chases success or battles against relegation or simply because the opportunity arises.

However, sometimes an injury crisis makes it necessary which was the case of Hull KR this year.

The Robins moved for former Leeds Rhinos Grand Final winner from their 2017 decider against Castleford Tigers and former Hull FC loanee Jack Walker from Bradford Bulls when Lachlan Coote got injured in a move that would prompt his early retirement.

The move was designed to be one that would allow Walker to return to the Bulls when not used which has been the case a few times and he has only played one game for the Robins in which he picked up a head knock which prompted a loan move for Catalans Dragons fullback Tanguy Zenon.

Then when Ryan Hall required minor surgery they drafted in his teammate from the Dragons Fouad Yaha.

The two were vital bodies but things didn’t go great for either in their last game against Leigh Leopards with Yaha suffering a hamstring injury.

They have now both been allowed to leave and rejoin the Dragons which is enabled by the return of Ethan Ryan on the cards.

However, another reason could be Brad Schneider’s reported move to Craven Park according to the Hull Daily mail with the NRL starlet set for a shock short term move which could see Lewis move to fullback with Schneider and Rowan Milnes as the halfbacks.
