Quinlan signs new deal for Rovers

Adam Quinlan is the latest Hull Kingston Rovers player to sign a new contract with the club.

League Express can reveal the Australian fullback has put pen to paper on a new contract that will keep him at the club next season.

He joins Matt Parcell and Ben Crooks in agreeing terms with the Robins, with the latter two players signing extensions last week.

Quinlan, 27, has been a livewire for the Robins but is currently on the sidelines, with a hand injury having ended his season last month.

Meanwhile, a number of players will leave Rovers at the end of the current campaign.

Ryan Brierley confirmed to TotalRL that he was leaving the club after failing to agree terms, while co-captain Weller Hauraki confirmed to Hull Daily Mail that he will also depart.

And League Express can confirm that forward Matt Gee is another who will head through the exit doors at the end of the campaign when his contract expires.

Gee was an off-season recruit from London Broncos and, despite playing regularly since lockdown, he will not be staying with the Robins next year.

He is understood to be in talks with Championship side Leigh Centurions, who have already signed one of Tony Smith’s current squad in halfback Jamie Ellis.

Meanwhile co-captain Hauraki admits he is disappointed not to be staying with the Robins next season.

“I love the club and the boys heaps so I’m really gutted I’ve not been able to get another contract,” he said.

“But I’m really keen to keep playing next year.

“I just need to play well in the last few games and earn a contract somewhere.

“I definitely want to stay in England and am hoping to get a Super League contract somewhere else if I can.”
