Hull KR have taken former Leeds and England winger Danny Williams on trial.

The 24-year-old, who has spent the last three years with rugby union side Newcastle, linked up with Justin Morgan's men yesterday.

"I'm thankful for the chance to come here. It's a great club and I'm thankful to get the chance to come and play with the boys and see where I can go from there," he said.

Williams scored 13 tries in 15 appearances during his time with Leeds, and also had loan spells with Hull and Castleford.

Morgan is looking for cover in his back department, having dropped England wing Peter Fox for a third time this season for Sunday's derby win over Hull.
