Crooks arrived at KCOM Craven Park on the eve of the transfer deadline along with Craig Hall, prior to the 2018 Super 8s Qualifiers to strengthen an injury-hit back division at the club – playing a pivotal role to help the Robins retain their place in Super League.

A familiar face in the city having come through the academy at Hull FC, he’s a former Super League Young Player of the Year and Dream Team member and a centre with plenty of attacking ability, with Castleford Tigers and Parramatta Eels also among his former clubs.

With 12 tries in 33 appearances since arriving in East Hull, Crooks’ aerial prowess is a key part of his game with his ability to out jump players and pluck the ball out of the air.
