James Robinson: Whitehaven sign ex-Workington prop forward

Whitehaven have signed experienced prop forward James Robinson following his release by Cumbrian rivals Workington.

The 34-year-old played eight times in last season's Championship in what was his 13th campaign at Derwent Park.

Robinson is the fifth winter arrival at Whitehaven, following the signing of Samir Tahraoui, Lee Mitchell, Shaun Ainscough and Larsen Marabe.
