Dave Peterson: Hull KR forward signs 12-month deal with Mackay Cutters in Australia
Hull KR forward Dave Peterson has decided to join his Robins team mate Louis Sheriff in Australia next year and will line up for the Mackay Cutters.
The 20-year-old made four Super League appearances in 2012 and spent most of the season on a dual registration with Workington but had been due to sign a new deal with Hull KR.
However, he then received an offer from the Queensland Cup-winning Cutters and told the Hull Daily Mail: "It was too good an opportunity to miss and I wondered whether it would ever come round again."
He has agreed a 12-month contract with Mackay, who have also signed Rovers' Australian prop Joel Clinton to play alongside Wales international Neil Budworth.
And full-back Sheriff also turned down a new Hull KR deal in favour of a move to the Brisbane Redcliffe Dolphins, who play in the same league as Mackay.
