Hull KR have given forward Kyle Trout a new one-year contract.

The 28-year-old joined the Robins from Championship side Dewsbury towards the end of the 2019 season, making five appearances.

Hull KR coach Tony Smith said: “After throwing himself in at the deep end without a Super League pre-season under his belt, Kyle has another chance with us in 2020.

“Now he has got a full-time position and with a full off-season to prepare with us, he will be ready to take this opportunity.

“Kyle understands that this may be his last chance to re-establish himself as a Super League player. Once you leave a position such as the top level of the sport, you sometimes do not appreciate what you had. We are happy to give him that opportunity and he will take it.

“Kyle will play in the middle for us, whether it be at prop or at loose-forward. He knows there is competition for places within the squad, so he must be at his best like everybody else. With a pre-season amongst the group, he will feel much more comfortable and know what is expected of him.”
