Joel Tomkins has signed for Hull KR after leaving Wigan by mutual consent.

The 31-year-old forward has agreed a deal until the end of the 2019 season at KCOM Craven Park, Rovers announced in a statement.

The move comes immediately after Tomkins left Wigan in the aftermath of his off-field behaviour revealed in a recent video.

The dual-code England international was already serving a four-week ban but Wigan say he has now left the club.

Warriors executive director Kris Radlinski said:

"Joel is a good guy and somebody I care about. This has been a really difficult situation for all people concerned. Now it is time to move on. We thank Joel and wish him well with his future endeavours."
