Brad Dwyer signs new deal at Leeds

Leeds have handed a new two-year deal to hooker Brad Dwyer, who was out of contract at the end of the season.

Dwyer, 27, joined the Rhinos from Warrington in 2018 and has made 57 appearances.

He said: “I have talked about how much of a honour and privilege it has been to play for Leeds Rhinos, pull on that famous shirt and call Emerald Headingley my home.

“I have the utmost respect for Gary Hetherington, Kevin Sinfield and Richard Agar and for how the club has handled the last few months. I can’t wait to get back out there on Sunday when we take on Huddersfield Giants and I am delighted to have agreed my new deal.”

Dwyer was a notable absentee from the RFL’s out of contract list released last week, which hinted that he had agreed a new deal at Headingley.

That has now been proved to be the case, and he will remain with Leeds until the end of 2022.

Coach Richard Agar added: “I think Brad deserves a lot of credit for how he has taken on board what we, as a coaching team, have asked from him.

“He would be the first to admit that he is still working on those areas but I think it was evident from how he started the season that he is reaping the rewards now. I think over the next two years that we will see even better things from Brad.”
