Former St George Illawarra utility back Adam Quinlan will be back in England in 2017 after signing for Hull KR.

The 24-year-old, who scored six tries in 11 Super League appearances for St Helens in 2015, has signed a two-year deal with the Robins.

Hull KR's new head coach Tim Sheens said Quinlan's speed and experience would be an asset for the relegated club.

"He's a good talker who organises the line and he's played in the halves too," Sheens said.

"He's been in good form and he'll be a great fit for us with the style we want to play."

Quinlan played in this year's Illawarra Cutters' NSW premiership side which went on to beat the Burleigh Bears in the national championship.

"I feel very privileged to be offered the opportunity to come and play for Hull KR," he said.

"When I played in Super League a couple of seasons ago, Rovers were a big team and they still are so it's a great opportunity for me to come over and represent a good club.

"It came as a bit of a shock to me to hear they had been relegated but from what I've heard I think we've got what it takes to bounce back and get the club back into Super League where they belong."
