In 2013 Larroyer was signed by Hull KR from Catalan Dragons on a season long loan deal.[4] After an impressive season at Hull KR, making 22 appearances for the Robins and scoring seven tries the club extended Larroyer's loan deal for another year for season 2015.[5]

In September 2015, the French international committed his future to Hull Kingston Rovers by signing a 3-year deal taking his service with the Robins into 2018.

Castleford Tigers[edit]

He was released from his contract following Hull KR's relegation from Super League at the end of the 2016 season and subsequently joined Castleford Tigers in 2017.[6]
