ADAM Rooks is ready to “go for it” next year after clinching a permanent move to the Bulls.

The 20-year-old forward has signed up for John Kear’s men for 2021 after his season-long loan from Hull KR was cut short by the pandemic.

Rooks was limited to just four outings but saw enough to convince him it was the ideal club to continue his development in the game.

Rooks said: “I am really pleased to have made my stay permanent.

“This season got cut short and I wanted a longer one - I think we would’ve gone for big things. But we will put all our eggs in one basket and go for it next year.

“When I first came to the club I fitted in straight away. The boys made me feel right at home and the coaches.

“Speaking to friends and family, I said from week one that this is where I wanted to be and where I wanted to play my rugby.

“The supporters are top class. There’s a really good crowd base and they still come and support, even though we’re playing at Dewsbury.”

Kear spotted his potential playing for the Robins – Rooks featured five times in the Super League in 2019. He had also played alongside Bulls youngsters Harry Shackleton and Ethan O’Hanlon for the Yorkshire and England academy.

With Connor Farrell forced to retire through injury, Rooks offers another option as an edge back-rower.

Rooks cannot wait to return again to a squad that will be boosted by the Super League know-how of Danny Brough and Aaron Murphy.

He added: “They will bring that experience and excellence for the younger lads to learn from next year and having them guide us round the park will only be beneficial for us.”

Kear is happy to see another piece in the jigsaw completed as he finalises his playing staff for next season.

The Bulls coach said: “In the short period he was with us prior to lockdown, he showed great potential.

“Adam is a young man eager to learn with a tremendous attitude and he will fit inn very well.

“When someone is so willing to work so hard and put themselves out, you are onto a winner.

“It has been rewarding when we have had these talks to extend deals to retain or recruit. We are getting a good reputation in how we are doing business and we have a great performance environment down at Tong.

“I think we are doing more right than wrong and that will be demonstrated on the field when we finally get back out in 2021.”
