Hull KR half-back Brad Schneider to join NRL giants after Super League spell

Brad Schneider will join back-to-back NRL champions Penrith Panthers at the end of his short-term spell in Super League with Hull KR.

The half-back joined Rovers from Canberra Raiders in July and made an immediate impact by kicking winning drop goals in his first two outings, including the one-pointer that sent Willie Peters’ side to Wembley.

Schneider has made eight appearances for the Robins so far, scoring one try and kicking 24 goals.

The 22-year-old will look to end his time at Craven Park on a high with KR on course to secure a play-off place.

Schneider has signed a two-year deal with the Panthers, who are 80 minutes away from another Grand Final.

Penrith CEO Matt Cameron said: “Brad joins the Panthers with NRL and Super League experience and will add depth to the club’s top-30 squad.

"Brad is a talented playmaker and we believe he will flourish in Panthers colours.”
