We all know that he is currently suspended from playing in the NRL, but in a move that has been bubbling for a while, Panthers utility Travis Burns has signed a 3-year deal with English Super League side, Hull KR.
Burns, who saw his NRL career end temporarily, after receiving a 12-match ban for two separate incidents, will link up with Craig Sandercock once more – who was a member of staff during Burns’s time at the Sea Eagles, a former club of his.
Burns said that for him, the move is the best fit, and he looks forward to his time at Hull.
â€œMyself and my family are very excited about heading over to Hull KR.
â€œIâ€™ve been watching a lot of the games on TV and I see a young team which is not far off being a real force in the Super League.
â€œOpting to join Hull KR was an easy decision for me as I know that the people of Hull are very friendly and love their football.
â€œCraig was also a big reason why I decided to sign. He was an assistant coach when I started my NRL career at Manly and I always knew he would coach at the highest level.
â€œThe conversations Iâ€™ve had with him about his plans for me and the club going forward made my decision easy and I canâ€™t wait to pull on a Robinsâ€™ jersey for the first time.â€
Sandercock believes that with the addition of Burns to the side, he can add a new dimension to the way that Hull KR play.
