French international completes season-long loan move to Hull KR

Kevin Larroyer

Loan moves are usually for shorter periods but in this instance, it is for the entire season, as Kevin Larroyer – a French international from the Catalan Dragons – has signed a season-long loan deal with Hull KR.

Larroyer, a second-rower, will play his first game at Craven Park – the home stadium of his club side – for his native France, when they take on Papua New Guinea.

For the club, they are just excited to have the 24-year old Larroyer on board, outlining his ability and potential as reasons behind recruiting him.

“Kevin is a very good young player and we are very excited to have been able to get him on-board,” said Hull KR coach, Craig Sandercock.

“He has a tremendous future in the game and myself and the rest of the coaching staff are really looking forward to working with him.

“I’d also like to put on record my thanks to the Catalan Dragons for allowing us to take Kevin on loan for next season.”

Also pleased with the signing is Hull KR CEO Mike Smith, who says that the signing of Larroyer and other recent signings show a key intent from the board to improve.

“Everyone at this club rates Kevin really highly and I’m sure the fans will love him too,” said Smith.

“The signings we have made so far and the fact that we have agreed to pay a loan fee for Kevin, are real statements of intent by the board.

“There’s a real buzz about the place at the moment with exciting new signings, the new stand opening, RLWC2013 action at Craven Park and encouraging season pass sales – I think 2014 is set to be a good year for us.”
