Craig Hall makes Featherstone move permanent

Drew Darbyshire

Hull KR full-back Craig Hall has signed a permanent two-year deal with Featherstone.

The 31-year-old joined the Rover on a season-long loan from Hull KR earlier this month – but he has now signed permanent terms with the Championship club.

Hall made 30 appearances for the Robins in 2019, scoring 12 tries.

He said: “It’s a really good opportunity for me. I’ve moved on from Hull KR now and with the way that Featherstone Rovers played, especially towards the back end of the season, hopefully I can add something to that.

“There was quite a few young players in the Rovers team at the end of last season that played really well so anything I can do to improve the team I will certainly be doing that.

“I’ve played down here a couple of times in the past and in front of the travelling support as well when Featherstone went to Leigh last season and they were great.

“I’ve come from a passionate fanbase over at Hull KR and I’m expecting much of the same coming from the Rovers fans.”
