New Hull KR signing Adam Walker 'will prove his worth' to fans
NEW Hull KR prop Adam Walker is confident he will prove himself in Super League with his aggressive style of play.
And the 21-year-old says he will give his all to repay the faith Rovers have shown in him, paying an ‘undisclosed fee’ to sign him from Huddersfield.
Walker, who is a product of the Giants’ academy and has spent five years at the club, has penned a three-year deal at MS3 Craven Park.
And he is confident the move is right for his career, as he looks to build on four Super League appearances last season.

“I didn’t know too much about the interest until I got a call saying they had watched me last season and had been impressed with what they had seen,” Walker told the Mail.
“Craig Sandercock has told me that he likes the aggressive way that I play the game, and he has told me how he sees me fitting into the squad and what he expects from me.
“He has also told me the weaknesses which I need to improve on, which are all the little things in my game.
“Now, I just want to work hard in pre-season to prove myself.
“Hull KR have been prepared to pay money to bring me here, and that is a great boost as it says they rate me and that I am wanted.
“Now I have to work hard to repay their faith in me, and to prove myself to the fans.”
Sandercock was delighted to have added another emerging English player to the Robins’ squad.
He said: “Adam fits the profile that we’re looking for in that he’s young, he’s English and he’s very keen to learn and improve as a player.
“I watched him a few times last season and was very impressed with what I saw. He has a lot of potential and if he works hard and maintains the right attitude then he has a great chance of establishing himself as a Super League player.”
