Hull Kingston Rovers acquire the services of George Griffin on a two-year contract – Rugby League
English Rugby League club, Hull Kingston Rovers (Hull KR), has acquired the services of the young and talented back row forward, George Griffin, to add depth to their forwards pack for their 2012 season’s campaign. Griffin has agreed to join the Rovers from Queanbeyan Kangaroos on a two-year professional deal. He confirmed his decision to join Hull while talking to Canberra Times on Tuesday, September 13.
Earlier, it was reported that Griffin was in contact with the Crusaders to join the club for their 2012 season’s campaign. However, following the withdrawal of the Super League license application by Crusaders last month, Hull KR came to extend their interest in his services.
Crusaders cited financial constraints as the key reason for their decision to withdraw from their three-year Super League licensing application.
The 19-year-old Griffin has expressed his delight on signing his professional two-year deal with Rovers. He added Rovers have approached him with a great offer, which was difficult to turn down.
Griffin has expressed his confidence that the move will certainly come a long way in developing his professional rugby league career. He said, “I'm just going to take it while I can and then after the two years I'll have another look, see what happens and see if I can get back out here.”
Griffin has extended his desire to return to Australia in the future to compete in the Australian National Rugby League (NRL) competition. He added that he has learnt a lot by simply watching the NRL games during his stay at the Kangaroos.  He said, “I can't sleep when I'm thinking of the NRL, eight games a week is imprinted in my brain. You learn stuff as well so I always keep an eye on it.”
Griffin joined the Kangaroos at the start of their last season campaign. Kangaroos are a minor Rugby League club and act as a nursery to filter players for NRL outfit Canberra Raiders.
