Kirk Works For Rovers


Rovers have signed hooker/half back Kirk Netherton from Widnes Vikings on loan to the end of the season.
25 year old Hull based Netherton has had spells with Hull KR, Huddersfield Giants and Castleford Tigers.

Netherton is cup tied and therefore won't figure for selection in this weekend's Carnegie Challenge Cup game against FC XIII Lezignan, but Head Coach Daryl Powell feels he will be in action in next weekend's big Co-Operative Championship clash against Halifax, saying;
Kirk will add some different aspects to our game. He's a fine left footed kicker- a rare commodity and valuable in any team's kicking variety. He also has the ability to score tries from near the line. Kirk will add real options and variety to our squad.
