Joel Tomkins joined Hull Kingston Rovers in mid-June after signing an 18-month deal with the club.

A former England international in both rugby league and union, Tomkins has racked up over 250 first team games during his two spells for Wigan Warriors and also played for Saracens after briefly switching codes midway through his career for a reported £250,000 transfer fee.

Powerfully built but with excellent skills and good speed, Tomkins provides a different option in the back row for the Robins, but can also play through the middle and further wide as a centre.
