Ryan Shaw crosses codes to play rugby union

Championship rugby union side Yorkshire Carnegie have confirmed the signing of Hull KR winger Ryan Shaw.

The 26-year-old has spent the last four seasons at the Robins, scoring 47 tries and kicking 140 goals in 81 appearances.

Shaw said: “I have always liked the idea of making the link across to rugby union at some point in my career.

“Having met with the Yorkshire Carnegie coaching staff, I knew this would be the right move for me. There will be obvious challenges but I am looking forward to it.

“I have been a full-time player since I was 17 but I have reached the age when you need to think about life after rugby and this opportunity with Yorkshire Carnegie is great for me on both fronts.

“As a goal kicker, I have always appreciated the importance of kicking in rugby union and I am looking forward to developing my game after crossing codes.”
