Super League star joins shock club

The likes of Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC and Huddersfield Giants have all confirmed major signings for the 2024 season.

But perhaps the best business has come from Hull KR. They have signed Niall Evalds, Peta Hiku, Oliver Gildart, Tyrone May and AJ Wallace.

They are have recently signed Jai Whitbread from Wakefield Trinity for next year too.

But incomings always means outgoings too and Hull KR are set to lose former Super League Champion Jimmy Keinhorst who has joined shock club York RLFC for next year according to the Hull Daily Mail.

Confirming the exits for 2024 in the past, Willie Peters said: “The experienced and older guys we’re having ongoing conversations with at the moment, SKD, Linnett and Coote,” Peters stated before outlining who would depart.

“Ethan Ryan and Jimmy Keinhorst are looking at other opportunities elsewhere.”

“Yes I expect them to move.

“Sam Wood is the other, we’ve had some conversations and he wants to be a first team centre in the future.

“Sam is a very good player, and he will be for the rest of the season. I can’t guarantee Sam Wood he will be a starting centre.”

One player who will not be going anyway is Mikey Lewis: “Then for me, it’s guys like Mikey, who’s only 21, it’s what people forget, is going to benefit from having Peta Hiku, guys like Tyrone May around.

“You look at Tyrone May, he was at Penrith. He started at six at one stage and then he got injured. But he had James Moloney that came in and Jerome Luai ended up getting his opportunity.

“The point is that Tyrone got to learn from these older guys around him and then he’s become the player that he is now because of the experience that he’s had with some players. So that’s what we’re trying to create at the club.

“We just need to keep developing Mike and then you know we want him part of this club for the next 12 years you know, however long I’m here I want Mikey Lewis at this club so and the people above me want Mikey Lewis at this club for the for the next 12 years or wherever it’s going to be.

“So it’s about development mate and I know it’s been a topic of conversation around who’s going to play where but like I say we need to have depth that’s the way you win competitions and things like that.”
