Scott Prince to come out of retirement to play for Hull KR
The 18th Man understands Scott Prince will come out of retirement to play for Hull KR in 2017. The 36-year old retired at the end of the 2013 season, but Tim Sheens is understood to have lured the Aussie to play for the Championship side on a 2-year deal.
Prince, who has over 300 NRL appearances under his belt with the North Queensland Cowboys, Brisbane, West Tigers and the Gold Coast Titans, almost signed for rivals Hull FC in 2012, but joined the Broncos at last minute.
Hull KR had big signings in store, if they’d avoided relegation!
Hull KR had lined up two huge signings for 2017, until relegation meant their plans had to be thrown out the window. The Red & Whites were set to import Dave Taylor as their marquee signing from the Catalan Dragons. The 28-year old is understood to be in his way out of the Dragons after just one season, and Tim Sheens had a deal in place to bring him to East Hull.
Rovers were also set to sign Ben Murdoch-Masila from the club that eventually relegated them, Salford. The Tongan international has been one of the stand-out players for the Devils this season, and would have been a major boost to Tim Sheen’s pack.
We also understand that Hull KR were hoping to sign London half Jamie Soward. The 31-year old has over 200 NRL appearances under his belt.
We also reported last week that Danny Addy and Mitch Clark will both not be joining Hull KR now following their relegation.
Huddersfield and Wakefield interested in Walker
A player on the way out of Hull KR could be Adam Walker. The 28-year old Scotland international is raising interest from his former club Huddersfield, along with Chris Chester’s Wakefield.
Walker signed from the Giants at the end of the 2012 season and has gone on to make over 80 appearances for the club. Speculation on social media also claims Hull FC are keeping tabs on Walker, but a move across the river seems unlikely.
According to the League Express, St Helens are also keen on Walker.
