Ben Cockayne

Hull KR have re-signed winger Ben Cockayne from Super League rivals Wakefield for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old, who scored 57 tries in 139 appearances for the Robins between 2006 and 2011 before being released, has signed a two-year deal.

He is the second Wildcats player to move to Craven Park this month, after prop Justin Poore joined last week.

"It's been a long time coming and I can't wait to get started," he told BBC Radio Humberside.

"Wakefield were absolutely fantastic to me and it has been a special time for me because they took me when no-one else wanted me.

"I don't think I have a point to prove here but I do feel I have a debt to the club and to the fans."
