Following their victory over relegated Widnes Vikings this afternoon, Hull KR have moved fast to confirm the signing of three new players in preparation for 2019 now their Super League status is secure.
Leeds Rhinos centre Jimmy Keinhorst is arguably the most exciting of the three as he will join Widnes forward Weller Hauraki and Ryan Lannon who will be joining from Salford. The former of those new signings has been rumoured for months and, when Leeds confirmed the German would be leaving the club at the end of the season at their awards nights last week, talk picked up once more that Keinhorst would be moving from West to East Yorkshire for next season.
Hauraki, a former Leeds and Castleford forward, only joined the now-relegated Vikings in June but will be moving on once more and will add further experience to the KR pack. Lannon will also add power to Rovers.
