Super League club miss out on immediate signing

Hull KR have been doing it tough with injuries.

They are without Jordan Abdull, Ryan Hall and others at the moment.

This has stretched their squad considerably and has left them turning to the transfer market.

Earlier this season they signed centre Corey Hall from Wakefield Trinity in a swap deal which saw Will Dagger head to the Belle Vue.

Then they signed former Leeds Rhinos star Jack Walker from Bradford Bulls with Lachlan Coote retiring due to injury.

But as the injuries pile up, the club are still looking for new signings.

“Yeah, so we’re certainly looking at the moment. Obviously, it’s halfway through the season, obviously contracts in place, players aren’t sure potentially what they’re doing next year,” Willie Peters said.

“It may be one of those where it’s more of an opportunity-based contract. Again, they’re not easy to find. We’re definitely searching and looking for that type of player and the right person.

“But as I said, we’ve got game this week. That’s our focus, but myself and Paul, obviously in the background, are working on how we can strengthen the side in terms of our depth.

“Well, there’s players that we’re potentially looking at, but again, it’s not an easy one, because it’s one of those where if you get a player from overseas then they do want to have a longer term contract.”

Peters also confirmed the club missed out on a new signing:

“We’re not sure we’re in a position to do that. There’s a lot of factors involved. We did have interest from one player, he wanted to come and then the club didn’t want to let him out, which is totally understandable, it’s their player. So you’re going to have that. So, yeah, we’re looking at certain players now. But again, nothing’s finalized yet.”
