The 24-year-old will join the Robins ahead of the start of the 2013 Stobart Super League campaign and at 6’ 5” and 16 stone is expected to add size and power to the red and whites’ pack.
Talking about his decision to join the Robins, Paterson said:
“I’m really excited about my move to Hull KR. I’ve been following the club for a while since Sandy (Craig Sandercock) and a couple of my old team-mates, Con Mika and Shannon McDonnell, went there. I rate Sandy very highly, not just as a coach, but because he’s also a great bloke who I know will help me both as a footballer and a person.
“I’m lucky I’ve got a British passport and playing in the Super League was always something I wanted to do so when the chance came up to play for Hull Kingston Rovers, I couldn’t resist. The timing is right for me and my young family to make the move. We’re all keen to get over there and experience a different lifestyle and culture and for me to play some good footy.”
