Kevin Larroyer hopes to find a home with in the coming weeks for the 2017 season.
The French international left Rovers in the wake of their relegation from Super League, after his contract, which had two years left to run, was made null and void.
The Free agent Larroyer, has been training with Hull KR’s cross town rivals ‘the Black and Whites’, but is hoping to sign with a new team. Coach Lee Radford would love to have Larroyer on his books, but due to Hull FC’s currently sitting at their salary cap maximum, Radford wants to help Larroyer find a new home.
“He’s currently out of the game so hopefully we can get him up to speed and find him a gig somewhere. “He’ll feature in the friendlies – he’ll feature next week at Doncaster. He’s just a trialist; I don’t think we’d do anything with him, not with the way the cap is at the moment.” Radford said.
The Widnes Vikings have shown interest in the 27-year-old French international who could fill the void left by Setaimata Sa following his departure.
It is also believed Leeds Rhinos, Salford Red Devils and St Helen’s have made general inquires for his services.
The former Rovers forward is disappointed how things happened at the end fo the 2016 season with Hull KR.
“I was expecting a massive pay-cut to my wages, but wasn’t expecting to be told that I would not be offered anything. He Said.
“I was asking people at the club whether I still had a future there. I was told I definitely did, so wasn’t worried. I then had a later meeting and was told there was no space for me. I feel like, at some stage, they haven’t been really honest with me.
“I have a few interested clubs who could potentially sign me for the 2017 season and I can remain in Super League.”
Larroyer has played 113 games, with his debut coming with Toulouse Olympique in 2010. He has represented France on 14 occasions.
