Rovers extension fantastic - Tomkins
Joel Tomkins says he is delighted to sign a three-year contract with Hull KR and continue this chapter of his career.
England international Tomkins joined Rovers on a short-term deal in June after resigning from Wigan Warriors and he impressed at Craven Park, scoring two tries from nine appearances.
After sitting down with the club's hierarchy, the 31-year-old has decided to accept the opportunity to extend his stay at the Super League outfit until the end of the 2021 season and help the team push on.
Speaking to hullkr.co.uk, Tomkins said: "At the end of the season I had a chat with Neil and Tim where they offered me a three-year deal and I jumped at the chance. It really gives me an opportunity to really stick my teeth into it and I'm happy to be spending the next three years at Hull KR.
"Joining halfway through the season was quite tough with coming into a new environment where all the boys knew each other, but the boys and the staff were all fantastic with me, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far.
"The fans have been really welcoming as well as the whole city, I have really enjoyed my time here so far and now moving over to the city gives me an opportunity to experience a different culture."
