Hull KR have signed Leeds Rhinos prop Robbie Mulhern on a two-year deal.

Mulhern, 21, made four appearances for the Rhinos and joins up with former team-mate Jamie Peacock who is now football manager at the Robins.

Coach Chris Chester told BBC Radio Humberside: "He's come through a really good system at Leeds and is very highly-rated by Jamie.

"He fits the bill for the recruitment that we are trying to do here and I'm looking forward to working with him."
