Hull KR: Former North Queensland Cowboy Wayne Ulugia joins
Last updated on .From the section Rugby League
Hull Kingston Rovers have signed former North Queensland Cowboys back Wayne Ulugia until the end of next season.
The Auckland-born 21-year-old can play at centre, wing or fullback.
Ulugia spent seven years with the Cowboys before parting company before the start of the current campaign for disciplinary reasons.
Ulugia said: "I made a few rookie errors, but it's a fresh start for me and I feel that I have a lot to give to the game."
He continued: "I've come over to Hull KR as I was told by good friends that it's a good family club with a close bunch of players.
"I've watched a few games and to tell you the truth, I don't think there is a lot of difference between the NRL and Super League. People back in Australia say that the competition over here isn't up to the standard of the NRL but I disagree."
Robins head coach Craig Sandercock said he believed Ulugia would prove to be a great asset to the squad.
"He is a player I've watched coming through the ranks at North Queensland Cowboys, he's also played for the junior Kiwis and is a good, young talent with a lot of potential whom I'm looking forward to working with," said Sandercock.
