FORMER Warrington Wolves forward George King has joined Hull KR with immediate effect after leaving Wakefield Trinity at the end of last week.

The 25-year-old will link up with his old Warrington boss Tony Smith after signing a deal to the end of 2022 and could make his Rovers debut at Huddersfield on Wednesday.

“I’m really excited,” said King. “It was my first day today and it felt like my first day of school.

“I know that the lads have been playing a really good brand of rugby and I want to be a part of that.

“Tony gave me my debut. I think really highly of him and his philosophy because he plays a really good, attractive brand of rugby.”
