Hull KR winger Ryan Shaw has left after four seasons with the Super League club to join Championship rugby union side Yorkshire Carnegie.

The 26-year-old scored 47 tries in 81 appearances for Rovers, and also kicked 140 conversions.

"I have always liked the idea of making the link across to rugby union at some point in my career," Shaw said.

"Having met with the Yorkshire Carnegie coaching staff I knew this would be the right move for me."

He continued: "As a goal-kicker, I have always appreciated the importance of kicking in rugby union and I am looking forward to developing my game after crossing codes."

Shaw was out of contract with Rovers and is the 27th new player to join Carnegie this summer after a period of financial uncertainty.

The club faced a 28-point deduction after announcing they would enter into a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) to help clear their debts, but avoided a penalty after all their creditors agreed to the terms of the agreement before an Rugby Football Union deadline of 9 August.
