Hull Kingston Rovers have confirmed the signings of two Papua New Guinea internationals.

Prop Enoch Maki and Francis Paniu, who can play in the second row or as an outside back, will join up with Craig Sandercock's squad when they return for pre-season training later this year.

Maki, who currently plays for semi-professional outfit Mendi Muruks, told reporters: "I'm looking forward to the challenge. It will be a lot of hard work but this is a great opportunity for us.

"We will be learning every day and taking as much as we can from the coaching staff at the club."

Both players will visit Hull over the next fortnight, as their national side face World Cup fixtures against France and Samoa at Craven Park.
