Suspended Panthers utility signs with Super League side

Travis Burns

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.

“Myself and my family are very excited about heading over to Hull KR.

“I’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.

“Opting 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.

“Craig 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.

“The conversations I’ve had with him about his plans for me and the club going forward made my decision easy and I can’t wait to pull on a Robins’ jersey for the first time.”

Sandercock believes that with the addition of Burns to the side, he can add a new dimension to the way that Hull KR play.
