Weller Hauraki hangs up his boots

Former Hull KR captain Weller Hauraki has announced his retirement from rugby league.

New Zealand-born Hauraki spent the last 11 seasons in Super League after initially joining Crusaders from Parramatta in 2010 and going on to play for Leeds, Castleford, Salford and Widnes before moving to Hull KR two years ago.

The back-row forward, who turns 36 next week, captained Tony Smith’s team in 2020 and, although he was not offered a new contract and left the club at the end of November, he had been considering playing on but he revealed to Hull Live that he has now decided to retire.

Hauraki scored 52 tries in 284 career appearances and represented the New Zealand Maori five times.
