Hull KR Squad Updates and Transfers for 2025 Season

Hull KR Strengthens Squad Ahead of 2025 Season

Hull KR have been active in the transfer market in recent weeks as they look to build their squad for the 2025 season, following a strong 2024 campaign. The Robins, who currently sit fifth in the Super League table, have suffered a setback with their semi-final defeat against Wigan Warriors in the Challenge Cup.

To bolster their squad, Hull KR have made several notable signings. They acquired Jack Brown from city rivals Hull FC in a swap deal that saw Yusuf Aydin move in the opposite direction. Additionally, Jack Broadbent has hit the ground running since joining the club from Castleford Tigers, while Danny Richardson has also joined from the Tigers to provide competition for Mikey Lewis and Tyrone May.

Alongside the new arrivals, the club has seen some departures, with Ben Reynolds leaving to join Aydin at Hull FC, and Reiss Butterworth, who was potentially out of contract at the end of the season, joining Dewsbury Rams on a two-week loan.

“Butterworth, the 25-year-old hooker, was the League One player of the year in 2023 and played a crucial role in Dewsbury’s promotion to the Championship. His return to the Rams on a short-term basis is seen as a boost for the club, who are currently bottom of the Championship with just one win from their opening eight games.”

The Robins have released a statement confirming Butterworth’s loan move, wishing him the best of luck during his spell with the Rams. This temporary arrangement could provide Butterworth with the opportunity to secure his future for the 2025 season, as he looks to challenge Jez Litten and Matt Parcell for a regular first-team spot at Hull KR.

Overall, Hull KR’s recent transfer activity demonstrates their commitment to strengthening their squad and building towards a successful 2025 campaign in the Super League.
