Hall to join Wakefield

Hull Kingston Rovers utility back Craig Hall will be joining the Wakefield Wildcats in 2015.

The 26-year-old joined the Robins in 2011 from Hull FC. He has gone on to make 73 appearances for the club, bagging 37 tries in the process.

A player who can operate anywhere in the back line, from 1 to 7, he believes that his versatility has worked against him during his spell with the Robins.

“I spoke to James Webster over there about what he was after and I was really keen to secure a regular first team spot,” said Hall.

“I’ve played in a few different positions over the past three or four years and it’s been great for the team but it’s played against me in a way.

“I’ve spoken to James about hopefully nailing a spot down in their starting 13 and it’s a challenge I’m looking forward to, but I’m determined to leave Hull KR on a high.

“I’ve played the last three games at left centre and with Chris now in charge, we’ll see what happens for the rest of the year.

“I’ve always given 100 per cent for the club and I’ll continue to do that over the next few months when hopefully we can have a good crack at the play-offs.”

Hull KR chief executive Mike Smith added: “I’d like to thank Craig for everything he has done for the club over the past four seasons.

“With Darrell Goulding joining us for next season and adding to the likes of Kris Welham, Liam Salter and Macauley Hallett who are already in the squad, we have plenty of options in the centres and can appreciate Craig’s desire for regular first team football at this stage of his career.

“We know he will give his all to the club for the remainder of the season when we will wish him all the best for the future.”
