Hull KR have released hooker or half back Connor Robinson to allow him to join Championship club Halifax with immediate effect.

The 20-year-old came through the Robins' academy ranks and made his Super League debut against London Broncos last season but has found first-team opportunities limited and, after recently playing for Halifax on dual-registration, has signed a one-year deal with them.
