Hull KR have confirmed the loan capture of Antoni Maria from fellow Super League side Catalans on an initial one-month deal.
The 32-year-old joins with immediate effect and is set to go straight into the Robins’ squad for this Sunday’s trip to Leeds.
The prop forward made 60 appearances for the current Challenge Cup holders across two stints, having made his debut for the Dragons against Castleford back in 2012.
Maria will bolster the KR pack after injuries to fellow front-rowers Mose Masoe and Mitch Garbutt, who remain sidelined following the Easter period.
The French international can also slot into the back-row, another position where Rovers remain depleted.
