Hull KR sign Kris Keating from Canterbury Bulldogs
Hull KR have agreed to sign Australian half-back Kris Keating from Canterbury Bulldogs on a three-year contract.
The 24-year-old, who started his career at Parramatta Eels, will join the Super League side ahead of next season.
"I felt like I needed a new challenge because it was getting a bit stale here," he told BBC Radio Humberside.
"It's a big change but it's a really good quality league over in England. It was an opportunity that I couldn't refuse.
"You can see from the way the team is playing at the moment that they're going somewhere."
Keating will replace fellow Australian Michael Dobson who is joining Newcastle Knights at the end of the season.
He added: "I've got some big shoes to fill because he's an impressive player but I'm looking forward to getting over there and giving it everything I've got."
