Robins land Peteru deal

Hull Kingston Rovers have finally landed a prop after completing the signing of Nathaniel Peteru.

The former Leeds Rhino forward has joined the club on a deal until the end of the season, providing some much needed competition in the Robins pack after a string of injuries.

“I’m very excited,” he said.

“I’m grateful to Tony Smith and the club for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to getting into training and getting up to speed with everything.

“Tony approached me a while ago but I had a few other things going on in my life. Then I talked to Tony again I couldn’t really say no this time.

“I’m really really thankful for this opportunity to come to a club like Hull KR and hopefully I can bring a positive influence to the place.”

In the absence of a number of Rovers’ starting members of the pack, the experience of the former Gold Coast Titans man will be vital.

“Tony touched on the game time with me and I got myself up to speed with what has been happening at Rovers. I want to bring my bit of experience to the team.”
