Hull KR have announced the signing of Bradford Bulls duo, Danny Addy and Mitch Clark.
Addy, predominately a loose forward, is a product of the Bradford academy and over the years has developed into one of the key names in the Bulls squad.
The 25-year-old made over 150 appearances for Bradford who this season, missed out on a top four finish and more importantly, missed out on a place in The Qualifiers.
Despite winning the Championship Shield, Bradford have not been able to keep hold of some of their best players and head coach, Rohan Smith, will have to huge task of rebuilding the team.
Mitch Clark will join Addy at Hull KR for the 2017 season. The prop followed his father’s footsteps by joining the Bradford Bulls however, the 23-year-old will now be looking to help his new side make a swift return to the Super League.
Both Addy and Clark have signed one year deals with the club who, a couple of months ago, were relegated to the Championship following a dramatic loss to Salford in the Million Pound Game.
Hull KR’s Head of Rugby, Jamie Peacock, told the club’s website:
“We’re delighted to welcome both Danny and Mitch to the club for 2017.We’ve been looking to increase the depth of the squad and both players have plenty to offer.
Although they are still in their early to mid-20s, they have plenty of experience for their age, have a good knowledge of the Championship and they are both hungry to come to Hull KR and make an impression.”
