Hull KR sign Nick Rawsthorne from Toronto

Hull KR have signed outside-back Nick Rawsthorne on a two-year deal from Toronto.

The 24-year-old, who scored 27 tries in 34 appearances for the Wolfpack, will join the Robins until at least the end of 2021.

Hull KR coach Tony Smith said: “There was a real desire from Toronto Wolfpack to keep Nick but he was keen to test himself and back himself here.

“He has a real desire to improve and has a good level of confidence in his own game.

“He also understands he has plenty to work on but he won’t give up on trying. He comes across with so much enthusiasm, and he wants to further his knowledge of the game.

“I know it is going to be exciting to work with him and watch his career develop. I’m very confident in him to become a very good player.”
