Jack Brown fulfils childhood dream as Hull KR supporter lands cross-city move

Jack Brown believes his career has come full circle after the boyhood Hull KR fan had his move to the club confirmed. Brown has joined the club on a two-and-a-half year contract from cross-city rivals Hull FC in a move which has seen Yusuf Aydin head the other way.

Brown spent his childhood on the terraces of Craven Park and will now get the opportunity to wear the red and white once more. He arrives after a stint on the west side of the city, where he made 66 Super League appearances since his debut in 2019.

"I’m buzzing," Brown said. "Coming early wasn’t something I expected but it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

‘Willie (Peters) sold me the club straight away. Hull KR is in a great spot and hopefully that continues. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in with the boys and learning all I can to develop my own game and help the team.

"Most of my family are Rovers fans. I remember coming to watch Hull KR and standing in the East Stand with them and now with the move it feels things have come full circle."

Brown is a new face to a pack that looks set to be freshened up next year. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will join the club from Sydney Roosters in 2025 while heading the other way, Matty Storton and George King are both expected to leave the club for Wakefield Trinity and Huddersfield Giants respectively.

Brown could make his debut on Thursday, with the 23-year-old added to Hull KR's 21-man squad for the trip to Warrington Wolves.
