Hull KR have confirms the signing of Dewsbury forward Kyle Trout for the remainder of the season.
The 28-year-old – who can play back-row or loose forward – arrived at KCOM Craven Park on Monday morning and will be eligible for the final five games of the Super League campaign.
Trout made his Super League debut with Wakefield in 2012, playing 25 games for Trinity before enjoying spells with Dewsbury and Sheffield in the Championship.
Trout said: “I’m really excited to get another crack at Super League. I’ve had a few years in the wilderness now so it’s great to be back.
“I’ve worked with James Webster at Wakefield before and things didn’t work out for one reason or another but now I’m here and I get another chance here. The move happened so fast but luckily for me and my career it has.
“I have the opportunity now and it’s up to me to take it. I want to prove some things to myself as well as everybody else, that I am good enough for this level.
“I know Ben Crooks, I’ve played with Robbie Mulhern earlier in my career. I came through the amateur game with Danny Addy and Owen Harrison played on loan for Dewsbury for us earlier in the season. I’m looking forward to getting to work with my new team-mates now and I’m playing for a deal for next year.”
