Joel Tomkins looks set to leave Hull KR even though he has two years remaining on his contract, according to reports.

Hull Live says the 32-year-old - who joined KR in June 2018 after resigning from Wigan - will depart immediately, less than a year after signing a new three-year deal.

Tomkins, who was captain of the Robins this season, had two spells with hometown club Wigan, sandwiching a spell in union in which he played for England.

He famously scored a stunning try at Wembley during the 2011 Challenge Cup Final.
