Shaun Kenny-Dowall has confirmed he’ll join English Super League Club Hull KR next season.

The winger was farewelled by the nib Newcastle Knights at the end of season awards night on Wednesday after signing a two-year-deal with the Rovers.

"I'm excited to be experiencing a new competition after so long in the NRL," he told the Hull KR website.

"I love the way the Super League is played and, for myself, it's a new challenge to move out of my comfort zone of the NRL and step into a different arena and test myself on the other side of the world.

"I've always wanted to tick that box in my career and I'm very grateful to Hull KR for giving me that opportunity."

Kenny-Dowall posted the below on his social media after the announcement: 

It reads: I’ve officially signed a two-year-deal in English Super League with the Hull Kingston Rovers.  

My Time in the NRL has come to an end. 13 years 279 games never beyond my wildest dreams, could I have envisaged the journey that has been. Plenty of highs and plenty of lows and I’ve loved every minute of it. So many lessons, memories and experiences I’ll cherish forever. Dreams really do come true.

So very grateful to the Sydney Roosters and Newcastle Knights for the time, energy and investment in me as a player and person to allow me to have had this amazing opportunity.

To the fans, players, sponsors, coaches and anyone who has supported me on this journey I thank you. You are what make this game so amazing. So many friendships and people I will cherish for a lifetime.

They say one door closes, another one opens. I’m excited for my journey to England. Can’t wait to meet my Hull KR family and get stuck into another tough preseason.
