Hull KR confirm Dewsbury dual-reg partnership for 2022
Hull KR is delighted to confirm the club will again link up with Dewsbury Rams as dual-registration partners for 2022.
The agreement will see players head to West Yorkshire throughout the season to support the Rams’ efforts during their 2022 Betfred Championship campaign. Likewise, Dewsbury players will be able to field players in the Robins’ reserves side for 2022.
As previously announced, KR will head to Tetley’s Stadium to face Dewsbury in the Robins’ first friendly of the new year, further strengthening the link between the two sides.
Hull KR Head Coach, Tony Smith was excited to see the return of the two clubs’ dual-registration agreement: “We’re looking forward to the reuniting of that partnership. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to use it to either club’s full benefit the last time around in 2020. But we’re looking forward to developing that arrangement again and both clubs’ benefitting from it.
“I’ve got a great relationship with Lee Greenwood and a lot of respect from him as a coach and what he’s done with his team. We speak regularly over the phone, so there’s a great connection between Lee and myself which is a real positive for that partnership to be successful.
“The agreement will see players from Dewsbury join our reserves for game time and we’d like to think players that are not making the first team here will take the step up from reserve grade and use the opportunity at Dewsbury as a way to go to the next level in the Championship. There are definitely benefits for both clubs that we’ll explore throughout the year.”
Dewsbury Head Coach, Lee Greenwood was delighted to see the relationship between the two clubs continue post-pandemic: “I’m really pleased that we are partnering with Hull KR again for 2022. They are one of the most progressive clubs in the game at the moment and this partnership is a good example of that.
“Players from both clubs will now have access to regular game time at the appropriate level for them. Players from our squad will be able to play for Hull KR reserves, which was a great experience in 2020 for the lads that did this.
“Similarly, we will be able to call on players from KR’s 1st team squad if it suits all parties. Tony Smith and I are in regular contact and I’m confident the two of us will make sure this partnership benefits both clubs immensely.”Back To Latest News +
