Super League side bring in star winger on immediate short term deal

Hull KR have confirmed Fouad Yaha will join the club on a two-week loan with immediate effect.

The French winger will link up with the Robins this week and will be in contention to feature against Wakefield Trinity on Friday night.

Yaha has made 151 appearances for Catalans Dragons, scoring 100 tries since making his debut in 2015, making him the Dragons’ all-time record try scorer.

Head coach Willie Peters noted that despite the loss of Ryan Hall, Fouad Yaha will fill the gap left by the Robins’ left winger.

‘We’ve picked up a very experienced winger in Fouad (Yaha), who is a great pick up at this time of the season for us.

He’s a powerful, out and out winger and that’s what we need at the moment. He’s the perfect player to fill the shoes of Ryan (Hall) these next couple of weeks.’

Hull KR progressed to the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup yesterday with a win over Salford Red Devils.

Their rivals were unable to join them as Hull FC lost to St Helens.

The Robins were helped in their win by the arrival of Catalans fullback Tanguy Zenon who scored on debut as he, like Yaha, began a two week loan.
