Josh Drinkwater will leave Hull KR at the end of the season


Hull KR have announced that ever-present Australian Josh Drinkwater will leave the club at the end of the season, along with fellow half-back Chris Atkin and forward James Greenwood.

The departures of Atkin and Greenwood was anticipated and the former has already secured a contract with Salford for 2020.

But Drinkwater's exit was unexpected, especially with his half-back partner Danny McGuire retiring.

Drinkwater has started every game for Rovers since joining them from Catalans Dragons on a one-year deal at the start of the season.

Atkin has had a bit-part role for much of the campaign, while Greenwood has been sidelined since March with a serious knee injury.

Hull KR head coach Tony Smith, who signed a new three-year contract at the weekend, said: "I've enjoyed my time with all three of those young men in terms of working alongside them.

"Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to coach James but he's been a pleasure around the place and a professional in terms of how he's been rehabbing.

"Chris and Josh have been tremendous and I wish them well in their future careers."
