Hull KR's Joel Tomkins signs new three-year deal

Joel Tomkins has signed a new three-year deal with Hull Kingston Rovers.

The dual-code international forward joined Rovers midway through the 2018 season. At the time he was serving a suspension at Wigan Warriors for an off-the-field incident.

Tomkins impressed on Humberside and helped the Robins secure their Super League status and will now remain until the end of the 2021 season.

“Joining halfway through the season was quite tough with coming into a new environment where all the boys knew each other, but the boys and the staff were all fantastic with me, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far,” Tomkins, 31, said.

“The fans have been really welcoming as well as the whole city, I have really enjoyed my time here so far and now moving over to the city gives me an opportunity to experience a different culture.”
