Chris Atkin is a scrum-half who initially joined Hull Kingston Rovers on a two-year contract from 2018 before opting to join the Robins prior the Super 8s Qualifiers, helping the side retain their place in Super League.

Since joining the Red and Whites, Chris has been a regular in the side thanks to his impressive ball playing abilities.

Atkin was a Widnes Vikings academy player and featured for England Students in the 2013 Student Rugby League World Cup before going on to sign for Swinton Lions in 2014, where he went on to make 100 appearances, racking up over 700 points before joining Hull KR.

The 25 year-old half-back can also slot in at fullback when required, but is a playmaker of real potential as well as an excellent goal-kicker.
