Hull KR have signed former Leeds prop Nathaniel Peteru for the rest of 2020 subject to visa approval.

The 28-year-old was released by the Rhinos at the end of last season after making 32 appearances for the club. He will link up with the Robins following the completion of his visa.

Peteru said: “I’m very excited, I’m grateful to Tony Smith and the club for this opportunity.

“I’m looking forward to getting into training and getting up to speed with everything.

“Tony approached me a while ago but I had a few other things going on in my life. Then I talked to Tony again I couldn’t really say no this time.

“I’m really really thankful for this opportunity to come to a club like Hull KR and hopefully I can bring a positive influence to the place.

“Tony touched on the game time with me and I got myself up to speed with what has been happening at Rovers. I want to bring my bit of experience to the team.”
