Hall signs five-year Leeds deal

Leeds winger Ryan Hall has signed a new five-year deal with the club.

Hall, 24, scored more than 30 tries for the third consecutive season last term, as well as picking up his third Grand Final winners medal, and topped that off with some impressive displays for England in the Four Nations.

He said: “I have only ever wanted to play for Leeds Rhinos and this contract will take me up to my tenth season at the club and the majority of my career which is a great honour and privilege.

“Likewise, I am proud to be a Rugby League international and perform for my country against the best in world. We took some big steps forward last year under Steve McNamara and I am sure there are some exciting times ahead with a home World Cup on the horizon. We have got some fantastic young players in our game, across all the clubs, and hopefully we are building towards something special.”

Hall made his debut for the Rhinos in the controversial victory over Bradford at the 2007 Millennium Magic weekend, but missed out on the Grand Final in that year.

Head Coach Brian McDermott added: “I think as a sport we should be very happy that a player of Ryan Hall‘s calibre has committed his future to our game. Ryan is a natural born finisher who has an innate ability to get the ball over the line when opportunities come his way. 

“To have consistently scored 30 or more tries in the last three seasons speaks for itself.”
