Latus leaves the Robins


12th July 2013

The Robins have confirmed that Sam Latus has been released with immediate effect to allow him to sign for another club for the remainder of the season.

A product of Rovers’ academy system, Latus made his senior debut in a 16-16 draw at Huddersfield back in 2010 and went on to make a total of 38 appearances for the club, scoring 14 tries.

The 23-year-old has found first team action hard to come by this season and club CEO Mike Smith commented:

“Sam has been a great servant to the club and a consummate professional at all times. He hasn’t figured as much as he’d have liked in the first team this year and both parties felt Sam probably needs a fresh start.

“We’ve agreed to release him from his contract now so that he has the best possible opportunity to find a new club. On behalf of everyone at Hull KR I’d like to thank Sam for his contribution to the club and wish him all the very best for the future.”
