Thomas Minns released from Hull KR by mutual consent

Hull Kingston Rovers can confirm that centre Thomas Minns has been released from his short-term contract by mutual consent.

The 24-year-old penned a deal until the end of 2019 in May on his return to the club. However, he injured his foot in training before playing a game on his comeback.

Expected to be side-lined for the rest of this month, Minns and the club have parted amicably and the centre has thanked everyone at Rovers for his second opportunity at the club, after a successful original stint from 2016 to early 2018.

“I’d like to say how welcoming the fans were on my return and I want to thank each and every one of them,” Minns told the club’s website.

“(Former coach) Tim (Sheens) too, he played a big part in my comeback to the club as well as (CEO) Mike Smith and (owner) Neil Hudgell.

“They didn’t have to give me that chance to come back and not many clubs would have done. They’ve continued to support me on and off the field.

“It was a mutual decision to part ways and we leave on really good terms. There’s no hard feelings about it – we just came to an agreement.

“Tony (Smith, KR coach) needed to see me play and with where we’re sitting at the moment, would you risk playing a player who hadn’t played in a long time in a period which could define the club? I don’t know, so there’s no hard feelings there either.

“I was gutted when I sustained that injury, but I can’t do anything about it. I’m just glad I got the opportunity to be back at Hull KR.

“I wish the club all the success this year and I hope they stay up – the fans are one of the most loyal in the division.”
