Gareth Hock signs Featherstone extension

Gareth Hock has signed a new deal at Featherstone, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2019.

Hock, 34, has scored three tries in 14 appearances for Rovers this season after joining in January from Leigh.

He said: “I am over the moon to have signed for Featherstone for another year, it is fantastic to be staying with such a great club.

“I have loved every minute of my time here so far, despite it taking me a bit of time to get going due to the injuries I suffered last year.

“I feel fit now, though, and am improving with every game.

“The fans have been superb and I cannot wait to rip in for the rest of this season and next.

“We want to nail our place in the top four and have a good go in the Qualifiers.”

Hock came through the ranks at Wigan and also played in Super League for Widnes, Salford and Leigh, as well as representing Great Britain and England.
Featherstone coach John Duffy said: “Gareth has been great and has really bought in to what we are trying to achieve.

“It has been fantastic to have him around the club and he is getting better every time he steps onto the field. He is a born winner.

“He leads by example in everything he does and is very popular with the players and staff.

“With a full pre-season under his belt, Gareth will only get better.

“He is focused on finishing this season on a high and he knows where we want to be.”
