Leigh Centurions have confirmed that seven-cap Scotland hooker Liam Hood has agreed a new two-year contract until the end of November 2019.

The 25-year-old international joined Leigh in March 2016 and has played 39 games, scoring nine tries since his debut at Halifax that season.

Leigh Centurions head coach Neil Jukes said: “I am delighted Liam is staying with us for at least another two years. He built on his outstanding displays for Scotland in the Four Nations last year by having a solid season for us and I am confident that Liam will continue to develop and improve his game at the rapid rate he has shown over the past few years.”

Unfortunately for Hood, he had to withdraw from the Scotland World Cup squad due to injury but he is expected to be fit for the start of the 2018 season.
