Winger Ben Cockayne is to leave cash-strapped Wakefield Trinity Wildcats to return to his former club Hull KR.

The 30 year old, who scored 57 tries in 139 appearances in his first spell with the Robins, left Craven Park under a cloud in 2011, following a series of disciplinary problems.

But now, after 27 touchdowns in 53 games for the Wildcats - a record that earned him a call-up into the England training squad earlier this year - he's signed a two year contract with Rovers, and insists he's a changed person.

He's the fifth senior player to leave Belle Vue, following the departures of Tim Smith, Kyle Amor, Paul Aiton and Justin Poore.
