Hull Kingston Rovers have signed young Australian Kieren Moss on a one-year contract.
Moss, 23, spent the second half of last season at Bradford, scoring 13 tries in 16 games. Before that he played for Penrith Panthers and Parramatta Eels in his native Australia.
Moss, who can play at full-back, on the wing or in the halves, has a British passport so will not count as one of the club’s non-federation trained players.
He told the club’s website: “I’ve always heard good things about this club. I’ve heard they’ve got a great fan base and I’ve got a couple of mates who have played here and they had nothing but positive things to say about it.
“Having a coach like Sheensy as well makes it a bit of a no-brainer, his record speaks for itself, so I’m really happy to be here and I got stuck straight in at training today.

“It’s always great having a few faces to recognise when you’re settling into a new club and I was with Mitch Clark at Penrith, we won the under-20s Premiership together, and I know Jake Butler-Fleming from there as well. I played with Danny Addy at Bradford last year too along with Mitch so that should help me settle in.
“My biggest assets as a player are probably my support play and my speed. I try to use that speed to the biggest advantage I can. When people talk about me as a player, I’d like to think they talk about my speed and how I use it.
Head coach Tim Sheens added: “Kieren is somebody who has been on my radar for a while. I’ve always liked him as a player and with what’s happened over at Bradford, we had the opportunity to bring him in.
“He’s very quick and a really smart player so he’ll be a very good addition to the side. He’s played on the wing, at centre and stand-off but mainly at full-back. We’re well-stocked in that area so we see him as playing mainly in the outside backs to start with and I’m sure the fans will like him wherever he plays.”
