The truth about Hull KR’s rumoured move for former St Helens star Regan Grace

Former St Helens star Regan Grace has been linked with a move back to Super League frequently in recent times.

The Welsh winger made his name in Super League debuting as a youngster at St Helens and scoring a sensational try in his Wigan Warriors – St Helens derby debut on Good Friday 2017.

He went on to slowly displace Adam Swift on the left wing eventually taking on the number five jersey. In 2019, he was part of the St Helens side who ended a five year wait to win the Super League title as they defeated Salford Red Devils.

He would be a part of the teams who lifted the trophy in 2020 and 2021 and in the 2021 was particularly special especially as St Helens won the Challenge Cup Final with Grace scoring a key try against Hull FC in the semi-final.

However, he would start the 2022 season injured and would miss huge chunks of it eventually suffering an ACL against Salford ending his season and his St Helens career as he joined Racing 92 in French rugby union.

He has yet to play for the club recovering from the awful injury. The winger could have returned to Super League recently with Wigan Warriors reportedly making an offer for the services of the Welsh flyer.

This was turned down and it has been rumoured recently that Hull KR have made a move for the former St Helens star.

However, Serious About Rugby League can reveal that the rumoured interest from Hull KR is false and that the Robins will not be signing the winger.

The rumour emerged after Willie Peters said that the club were considering a move for rugby union players due to the salary cap benefits of signing from union as they don’t count on the cap for their first season.

However, this would not apply to Grace as he is rugby league trained so he would count on the cap like any other Super League player.

So, it is no surprise that Hull KR are not actually interested in the flyer. The club have some terrific options in the backs having signed Niall Evalds, Oliver Gildart and Peta Hiku.
