Leeds Rhinos forward Chris Clarkson has joined Hull KR on a three-year deal after spending 2015 on loan at Widnes.

The 25-year-old made 25 appearances for Widnes and leaves Leeds with a year left on his contract.

He twice featured for Leeds in Challenge Cup finals and was part of their 2011 Grand Final-winning side.

Clarkson joins Rovers as a replacement for captain Tyrone McCarthy, who has agreed a two-year deal with Australian NRL side St George Illawarra Dragons.
