Warrington sign Cox from Hull KR

Warrington Wolves have snapped up Hull KR forward Jordan Cox for the 2016 season.

Rovers have released the 23 year-old from his contract enabling him to head to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The 23 year-old made nine Super League appearances for the Robins last season and struggled to hold down a regular first-team place.

Cox also made two appearances for Huddersfield Giants during a short loan spell last term and one appearance with Championship side Halifax, whom he joined on dual registration.

In total the prop or second rower has made 64 appearances for Rovers since coming through their academy set up in 2011.

Wolves head coach Tony Smith told the Warrington website: “We are delighted to have signed Jordan. He is a big human being and fits the brief of what we are after here. He will add more depth to our forward pack and create more competition for places both in the middle at prop and back row positions. He’s been a former representative in the England Knights set-up and he has ambitions to go some steps further and we will be trying to help achieve some of those.”

Cox added: “It’s a massive club. Warrington are always near the top, always there or thereabouts, pushing for silverware and challenging for top spot. I want to be a part of that. Warrington is a side I can hopefully push on in. The facilities here were a massive factor when I got shown around. What you put in and invest in off the field, you get back on the field. The indoor training facility and gym here are top notch and it’s working on the field too. I have fitted in really well so far. I know a couple of the lads already but it’s been good to meet all the players, staff and conditioners, everybody has been really good with me.”
