Australia-born Schneider made 12 appearances for the Raiders after making his NRL debut in 2021, scoring one try and kicking 23 goals.

Schneider was brought in by head coach Willie Peters after key man Jordan Abdull suffered a long-term hamstring injury.

Speaking when Hull KR announced his signing last week, Schneider said: “I’m excited to get over there and rip in.

“I had a chat to Willie and the one thing that stood out to me the most was how much he wanted me there.

“As a player, the confidence that gives me, it’s a wonderful feeling.”

Peters added: “It’s a really positive signing for the club at this stage of the season.

“Brad’s going to give us some much needed depth in the halves, he’s a talented young player who works hard, and that’s what we want at this club.”

Schneider was born and raised in Australia and is of German heritage. He has represented Germany in rugby league, winning five caps for the country.
