Good to see full back covered early on. Should hopefully be a decent replacement for Golding.

Not as reliable as Golding at Full Back, but will score lots of tries. His best position is left centre/winger.

Reading of his full background I reckon he is one of the best fullback covers for Golding we could get. Well done to the club for acting so swiftly.

Good to see that there's no 'call back' clause.

Yep...reading between the lines, he signed an extension to the end of 2020 last June but that was just a few days after Sheens had left and Smith had become HKR's coach. By all accounts he didn't play as well in the 2nd half of the season under Smith as he had under Sheens.

On the face of it this looks like a very happy outcome for us...Smith clearly didn't see him in his plans but they couldn't just release him, presumably HKR will still be paying a chunk of his salary. He's a quality player and also has a degree of versatility, which helps when you run with a smallish squad.

An excellent signing - SL quality and can play in a number of different key positions.

I remember a few years ago watching him turn out for Wakey against us in a pre-season game at a dank PO Road, and thinking then what a good signing he might be for us, then along came Toronto..........

Well done Rovers, and welcome to the club Craig.

Yep great signing.  I remember another pre season game at Belle Vue a few years back when he looked a different class.  Can get some serious distance on his goal kicks as well (Chisholm can kick them from anywhere but he makes me nervous).

More a winger-centre than FB , gets caught out of position too much , but will score and set up a shed load of trys in the Championship

A tried and tested player. Is a very good addition IMO.

This is an interesting interview with the Hull Daily Mail. During the spell at the end of the season when Hall's form was viewed as having dipped, he was dealing with an ankle injury and was getting painkilling injections both before the game and at half time. I often think this is something that we as fans tend to underestimate, because clubs don't always disclose the nature of injuries as the opposition could look to exploit them.

In that case it is obvious that they didn't C HALL they should have.
