Ben Kavanagh joined Hull Kingston Rovers from Bradford Bulls for the 2017 campaign and enjoyed an impressive first season with the club as one of the team’s most consistent performers.

A former England Academy representative and a current full Scottish international who featured for the Bravehearts in the recent World Cup, the 6ft 2in, 17-stone prop offers significant power and experience to the Robins ranks and is particularly good at winning a quick play-the-ball.

Having come through the system at Wigan Warriors, Kavanagh went on to make more than 200 first team appearances for Widnes Vikings, Wakefield Trinity and Bradford, and bolsters the front row options for head coach Tim Sheens.
