Larroyer staying with Hull KR

Hull KR have secured the services of France international forward Kevin Larroyer on loan for a second season.

The 25-year-old Catalan Dragons back-rower has spent 2014 with the Robins, who have now agreed a new deal with the Perpignan club to keep him for 2015.

"I've really enjoyed my time at the club this year," said Larroyer, who has scored seven tries in 22 appearances.

"I've settled in really easily and everybody has made me feel welcome, so I'm excited to be staying.

"I spoke to the Dragons and explained that I wanted to stay at Hull Kingston Rovers and they understood the reasons why.

"I feel like I've improved a lot this year but I know I've still got more in me."

Rovers coach Chris Chester said: "I'm absolutely delighted that Kev has decided to stay at Hull KR.

"He's played 80 minutes each week for most of the year and he's been one of our most consistent performers every time he has taken to the field.

"We're grateful to Catalan for allowing him to stay and I'm sure there is even more to come from him in 2015."
