“It’s been an absolute pleasure to play for such a great club. My time at Rovers was full of ups and downs, from relegation to promotion, but I have loved every minute.

“I’ll always be a Rovers fan. I’m pretty emotional to be leaving but again I’d like to thank the entire club for what they’ve done for me, as I look forward to a new challenge.”

Coach Tony Smith added: “It’s been a pleasure coaching Ryan across the last few months and everybody at the club wishes him well for the future.

“His kicking record, as well as his try-scoring form, speaks for itself and he’s played a hugely important role for the team across the last four years.

“On behalf of the club I’d like to thank Shawy for his time and efforts with Hull KR.”
