Hull KR confirmed Ben Reynolds' departure from the club with a cuttingly-short 14-word statement. The club headlined the exit statement by saying he was leaving by mutual arrangement.

It was then stated: " Hull KR can confirm the club have terminated Ben Reynolds contract by mutual agreement."

The lack of well wishes came after a difficult spell with the Robins, who had loaned him out to Hull FC until the end of the season. But the half-back, 30, has now left FC with immediate effect to sign an 18-month deal with Featherstone Rovers.

Reynolds' stay at Craven Park was a particularly short one. He joined the club in February from Featherstone Rovers, but after making just two appearances in three months, he was loaned to the club's cross-city rivals. And in another bizarre twist, Reynolds has now left the Black and Whites in the week heading into the derby, and is returning to Featherstone less than six months since his departure.

He had been recruited by Rovers as a replacement for Jordan Abdull, who had unexpectedly departed for Catalans Dragons in the off-season. He was brought in to act as an understudy to Tyrone May and Mikey Lewis but following his departure from Craven Park, the club moved to sign Danny Richardson for the remainder of the season.
