Hull KR confirm third signing as 'best player in the Championship' completes move

Willie Peters believes Hull KR's new signing is Super League ready after Rovers confirmed the signing of prop Eribe Doro. As first revealed by Hull Live, the Bradford Bulls forward has joined the Robins, with the club confirming he has signed a two-year contract with the club.

The 23-year-old comes after an impressive stint at the Bulls, having also spent time with Halifax Panthers and Widnes Vikings since leaving Warrington Wolves. Bradford coach Eamonn O'Carroll recently described him as the 'best player in the Championship', with Doro gaining a reputation for having the best carry in the second tier.

He becomes the club's third confirmed signing for 2025, following Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Tom Davies in signing for Rovers next year. While he doesn't boast the same pedigree as the other two, he has made just four top-flight appearances during his career, Peters is confident he has what it takes to make an impact in Super League.

"We’re pleased Eribe is joining the club in 2025," Peters said. "Eribe has worked hard to get the opportunity to return to Super League by being one of the standout front rowers in the Championship competition.

"The progression Eribe has made during his time in the Championship will stand him in good stead for taking the next step in his journey. Eribe is ready to test himself as a Super League front rower.

"Eribe will add real value to us with his aggressive running style and strong defence. We are looking to help develop Eribe’s game further in 2025 and beyond."

Doro, who will remain with Bradford for the remainder of the season, added: "I’m excited to join the club. Hull KR are doing some big things at the minute so when the opportunity came for me to join that and be a part of it, it was something I jumped at.

"I had a few conversations with Willie (Peters) and he got me excited about the potential to improve my game at Hull KR. I’ve had a small taste of Super League when I was at Warrington, it was an experience I enjoyed. I play rugby to play at the highest levels to push myself and challenge myself.

"My time in the Championship has done wonders for my game personally and allowed me to grow and mature. I’m at the age now were I’m ready to go back up to Super League and add something to a team while I improve and grow in a full-time environment. I’m a hard worker and every time I’m on the pitch I’m giving it 100% for the team."
