Hull KR sign flyer Omari Caro from London Broncos
HULL KR are set to confirm the signing of London Broncos' Omari Caro – days after the flying winger proved his pace to the Robins.
Caro impressed when scoring a 90-metre interception try in London's 48-42 win at The Stoop on Saturday.
But it will prove to be his last game for the Broncos, with a two-year-deal believed to have been signed off last week following the passing of the anti-tampering deadline.
Having failed to hold down a regular starting place under Rob Powell, Caro has been a regular under Tony Rea since his return to the club in July.

He was seen saying his goodbyes to Broncos officials and fans after the final hooter on Saturday, and will be part of a new-look Rovers side under coach Craig Sandercock in 2013.
The 21-year-old, who is 6ft 3in tall and won the fastest man in Super League title earlier this year, has bags of raw talent to work with.
Despite being inexperienced with just 12 Super League games to his name, his pace makes him a constant threat to opposing sides.
However, he will face a battle to secure a first team spot at the Robins, where Dave Hodgson, who finished as Rovers leading try scorer, already has one of the spaces secured.
Rovers' squad is now beginning to take shape for next season, with NRL star Travis Burns a direct replacement at stand-off for Blake Green, who is expected to be announced as a Wigan player this week in a £100,000 move.
The Robins have already announced the signings of Cory Paterson and Evarn Tuimavave from Newcastle and centre Sean Gleeson from Salford.
The weekend loss at London marked the end of a number of careers with the Robins, led by captain Ben Galea, who will join Hull, long-serving Scott Murrell, who is yet to find a new club, Aussie prop Joel Clinton and Jake Webster, who has signed for Castleford.
