Full-back Will Dagger has signed a two-year contract extension at Hull KR.

Dagger, 22, was man of the match in Hull KR’s televised win against Castleford last week, which helped put them in control of their play-off destiny ahead of the trip to Leeds on Friday.

Coach Tony Smith said: “I’m pleased for Will. It’s based on the way he applies himself on and off the field. We feel we’re going to be able to help him develop over the next few years.

“We want hardworking, talented young players coming through at the club. For his young age, he’s been around the professional game a long time now and we feel he can help us progress as a team. I’m looking forward to working with him for the next two years.”

From Castleford, Dagger played under Tony Smith briefly at Warrington making his debut against his hometown club back in 2017.

At the end of that year, he moved to East Hull on a three-year deal and made his debut in the early season win over Catalans.

He had loan spells at York, Leigh and Featherstone, and he returned for another spell at Featherstone earlier this year.

Dagger has scored four tries in 34 Super League appearances and follows the likes of Jimmy Keinhorst, Ben Crooks, Matt Parcell, Kane Linnett and Shaun Kenny-Dowall in signing contract extensions.
