Hull FC prop Brad Fash has penned a new three-year contract extension with the club.
The 22-year-old has impressed when coming off the bench in their last four games and is on his way to establishing himself as a regular in Lee Radford’s side.
And the contract will keep him at the club until the end of the 2021 season.
Radford said: “Brad has been at the club for a very long time now and we’re lucky to have a player like him, another player who has come through our scholarship system.
“He’s one of the most low maintenance players I’ve worked with. He’s not the biggest player but he makes up for it with his determination.
“Like all members of the squad, Brad will only get better and that’s one of the reasons why we wanted to sign him up to a new deal. He’s got a very bright future ahead of him.”
Fash, who won FC’s young player of the year award in 2017, is the club’s third player to sign a new contract following Liam Watts’ exit after Carlos Tuimavave and Masi Matongo penned new deals last week.
The young forward said: “I’m really happy to have signed the new deal.
“I’ve come through the academy system and I’m delighted to tie down my future with the club. It’s where I want to be.
“I feel like I had a good season in 2017 and played a lot of game time. And I’m happy that the club want me to stay here be part of the set-up moving forward.”
