Mike Smith, who has served as Hull KR's chief executive for 10 years, is to stand down from his role in May.

The 58-year-old suffered from poor health in 2018 and 2019 and said the time had come for a "fresh approach" to lead the club to Super League success.

"I'm incredibly proud of how the club has developed, particularly off the field," Smith told the Hull KR website.

"It's a 24/7 job being a chief executive of a Super League club and that brings so many pressures."
