Hull KR have announced the signings of Crusaders forward Ryan O'Hara and Huddersfield Giants player Graeme Horne.
Australian O'Hara, 30, and 26-year-old Horne have both signed two-year contracts with the Robins.
O'Hara will not count towards the Robins' overseas quota after the collapse of Crusaders due to a new Rugby Football League directive.
He said: "I had a few offers but coming to Hull KR was a good fit for me."
The former New South Wales man added: "It has been a bit of a rollercoaster for a few weeks and at one point it looked like I'd be going home for good."
Horne's move sees him return to the city where he first emerged in the game with rivals Hull FC.
Despite being a Challenge Cup winner in 2005 and a Grand Finalist in 2006, Horne was never fully able to cement a spot alongside his brother Richard at Hull, but has flourished since moving to Huddersfield two years ago.
Now accomplished anywhere in the pack or at centre, he said: "I think I've matured as a player and as a person at Huddersfield.
"I'm glad to be coming back to the city and I'm really excited about next year. I want to be a very good player for the team."
The pair follow Huddersfield winger David Hodgson in agreeing deals with KR for next season and beyond.
