Hull forward Chris Green has signed a new two-year deal with the club.
Green, 22, crossed for his first senior try in Sunday’s 33-10 victory over Hull, and has made seven appearances in his debut Super League season.
He told the club’s official website: “It has been a pretty good week to score my first try and then to sign a new deal, so I’m really pleased.
“I am thankful to Peter Gentle for my opportunity this season and hopefully a new contract is the reward for my efforts this year and a chance for me to progress.
“Hull FC is my home town club and there is no other place I want to be playing.”
Green has spent time on dual-registration deals with Championships clubs Doncaster and York, but made his top flight debut against Bradford in March.
Head Coach Peter Gentle said: “The pleasing aspect about Chris has been his attitude and patience, he has worked hard on his game throughout the season and when a chance finally came to play he grasped it with both hands.
“He is a big, strong athletic presence that is improving week by week and he has a role to play in our squad and our future like all our young players do.”
Hull travel to Widnes for the SKY televised game on Saturday, where a win could move them level on points with any of the three sides above them.
