Salford City Reds have lost another key player after Sean Gleeson agreed a three-year deal to move to Super League rivals Hull KR.
This move, for the start of next season, comes just a week after MM were first with Matty Smith’s switch to league leaders Wigan Warriors.
And head coach Phil Veivers is disappointed by the Irish international’s exit, but admits he is just another player that will need to be replaced in the off-season.
“It is disappointing when any player decides he isn't staying. There is not a lot more I can say on the subject,” he said.
“It simply means this is another player we must try to replace for next season.”
In contrast, Robins boss Craig Sandercock is delighted to see the centre move to Humberside.
He said: “Sean is a player that I've been watching for a while and will be a terrific addition to our squad.
“He's been very impressive for Salford this season and at 24 he has the best years of his career in front of him.”
Gleeson’s exit means Veivers will have a significant rebuilding job to do in time for next season with fullback Luke Patten having already confirmed his retirement and return to Australia.
Also, influential standoff Daniel Holdsworth has been strongly linked with a move away, with Hull FC a possible destination.
