Brad Dwyer signs up with Leeds for 2020

Leeds hooker Brad Dwyer has agreed a one-year contract extension with the club for the 2020 season.

The 26-year-old joined the Rhinos in 2018 from Warrington and has made 39 appearances for the club so far.

Dwyer’s contract was due to expire at the end of the current campaign and attracted interest from Salford – but he will remain at Emerald Headingley until at least the end of 2020.

Rhinos director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said: “It is good news that Brad has committed his future to the club.

“I know he had offers from other clubs so it is particularly pleasing that he has opted to remain a Rhino.

“Before he came to Emerald Headingley, he had played the majority of his career as an interchange hooker however he is now able to play big minutes as well as have an impact when he comes into a game.

“He is a popular member of the squad and I look forward to seeing him progress over the next eighteen months.”

Dwyer added: “It is great to have my future sorted and to know I will be at the Rhinos next season.

“We have been talking for a while and I am pleased to be part of the team for the future.

“Having spoken to Kevin Sinfield at length, I have been impressed with the club’s vision for the group and hopefully I can continue to develop my game as this team grows.

“When I first came here it was to challenge myself and get outside of my comfort zone. I think I have improved as a player through the opportunities I have had here at the Rhinos. I love this club and it really has felt like home to me ever since I arrived.”
