Hull Kingston Rovers have made a statement of intent ahead of the 2017 campaign by signing Australian speedster Adam Quinlan on a two-year contract.

A quick and elusive full back who can also play in the halves, Quinlan boasts NRL experience with St George and was part of the Illawarra Cutters side which won last season’s Intrust Super Championship.

The 24-year-old has been a stand-out performer in reserve grade Down Under, also previously playing alongside the club’s fellow new recruit Jake Butler-Fleming at the Wentworthville Magpies, and ran in six tries during 11 Super League appearances for St Helens during a short spell at the club in 2015.

A proven try-scorer and creative threat when linking into the attacking line from full back, Quinlan is set to play a major role in the Rovers’ quest for an immediate return to Super League and he told he’s excited about making the move to the Lightstream Stadium.

Quinlan said: “I feel very privileged to be offered the opportunity to come and play for Hull KR.
