Ben Cockayne says he has unfinished business at Hull KR, after penning a two-year contract to return to Craven Park.

The 30-year-old made 139 appearances for Rovers, scoring 57 tries between 2006 and 2011, before leaving the club by mutual consent partway through the 2011 campaign after a string of disciplinary problems.

He then went on to win the Championship title with Featherstone in 2011, before joining up with Wakefield, where has been an ever-present for the last two seasons, scoring 28 tries.

Cockayne becomes the latest in a string of high profile stars to leave Belle Vue, and admits he exits with a heavy heart.

“I’ve had the best two years of my career at Wakefield, and can’t thank Richard Agar enough for giving me the opportunity when no-one else would take a chance on me,” said Cockayne.

“We didn’t have any superstars, but they’re the best bunch of blokes I’ve ever played with and I’ve never had as much fun.”
