Bradford winger Ethan Ryan makes Hull KR switch

Challenge Cup QF - Bradford v Halifax - Sunday 30 May

Hull KR have signed winger Ethan Ryan from Bradford on a two-year deal.

Ryan, 23, has scored 89 tries in 98 appearances for the Bulls and played for Ireland at international level.

He said: “When I arrived at the stadium, the move started to sink in and I’m really excited to be a part of something new.

“It is another step up for me, being in the Super League. It is something that I have never done before but I can’t wait to get stuck into pre-season.

“I was with Bradford for four years and I had a great time there. There were some highs and lows there, but this is a fresh start for me across the next two years.”

Ryan hails from Halifax and becomes Tony Smith’s fifth new signing, playing under Smith’s nephew Rohan at Bradford.

Smith said:  “Ethan is an exciting young player that I think will have a real impact at Hull KR.

“Not only can he can score tries, as his record shows, but the other aspects that he will bring, such as his speed, makes him a very exciting prospect.

“Ethan knows that he is just starting out his Super League journey – but he’s got the right attitude and he’s hungry for it.

“He wants to further his career here and to make a successful career in Super League.  He fits our criteria of young people that want to come here and improve themselves, and he wants to prove he’s capable of making that top-flight jump.”
