Mose Masoe signs for Rovers

Hull Kingston Rovers have boosted their squad for the upcoming Super League Qualifiers with the signing of Mose Masoe.

The powerhouse prop joins the East Hull outfit for the rest of the season, with an option to remain at Craven Park in 2018.

Already accustomed to life in the U.K, Masoe previously spent time with St Helens, and won the Grand Final with them in 2014.

The Samoan signs from St George Illawarra in the NRL, having made 63 first grade appearance in Australia’s premier competition.

Standing at 6ft6 and weighing over 20 stone, Masoe is only 28-years-old, and adds power and size to the Rovers pack. There’s no doubting his metre making qualities and he adds the necccesary fear and punch into the pack. He’ll be a big hit in the Qualifiers and hopefully will push his new club back to Super League.

The singing however is pending visa clearance, with Masoe set to arrive in the country once the paperwork has cleared.

Speaking to the clubs official website Masoe said: “Hull KR have given me an opportunity to come to the club at an exciting time.

“They’re trying to make it back up and rebuild for next year and I want to come over there and try to help them get back to Super League, which is where the club should be.”
