Wigan Warriors have signed 21-year-old England international forward Scott Taylor from Hull KR for a "substantial settlement fee".
Taylor was under contract at Craven Park, but
refused to enter negotiations
over a new deal with Rovers.
He is the second player from Hull KR to make the switch to Wigan for the 2013 season, with
half-back Blake Green also moving to the DW Stadium.
Taylor has signed a two-year deal, with the club having an option for a third.
The loose forward, who made his England debut against the Exiles in July, told
BBC Radio Manchester:
"When you're growing up, Wigan are a team that you always look at.
"Anyone who knows even a little bit about rugby league knows about Wigan.
"They're one of the best teams in the world and to have the chance to sign for Wigan is a dream for me. I'm over the moon that I've signed on the dotted line and I'll be with them next year."
