Rob first came to the Lions on loan from St Helens in early 2018 and made an immediate impact as a tough and confident probing half-back. For the second half of the 2018 season Swinton secured a more permanent loan deal for Rob, before announcing a two-year deal ahead of the 2019 season.
Fairclough played his early days with Blackbrook ARLFC, and produced performances that earned him a place on the England Under 18s tour of Australia in 2016. Rob has now emerged as a key player for the Lions, a fact which often earns him uncompromising attention from the opposition. During the 2019 season Rob scored five tries in 27 appearances.
