Leeds land Robins forward
After a successful trial with the club, Leeds Rhinos have signed former Hull KR forward James Donaldson on a one-year contract.
The former Robins forward had left KR at the end of last season and was looking to get himself a club and, after writing to the majority of Super League clubs, landed a trial at Headingley.
Following the trial he has been offered a one-year deal at the club and he is delighted to sign and end the uncertainty of where he would be plying his trade this coming season.
The 27-year-old said: "It's a great feeling because it's been a tough road these last three or four months. It's a great relief," he told BBC Radio Leeds.
"I always knew I could prove my worth and I'm thankful that I was given the opportunity.
"I watch what I spend and I look after my money but obviously it's not easy when you don't have pay coming in.
"It was tough but I'm on the right track now.
"I messaged most coaches in Super League myself so I knew what was going on and I got a response from Kevin Sinfield and I'm really happy that it paid off."
