Cory Paterson has agreed to join NRL club Wests Tigers on a one-year deal when he leaves Hull KR.

The Australian forward signed for Rovers on a two-year contract before the start of this season's Super League but asked for an early release because of homesickness.

And the 26-year-old, who previously played for Newcastle and North Queensland in the NRL, has now secured a return home.

Tigers boss Mick Potter told the club website: "Cory is a big strapping back-rower who can break the line and also offload the ball.

"He is an experienced NRL player who still has plenty to offer. He is playing very well for Hull KR but his wife is extremely homesick.

"Cory is coming back for a chance to re-establish himself in the NRL. His experience will be invaluable to some of our younger back-rowers."
