“It was an easy decision” – Kruise Leeming on signing new Leeds deal

Leeds hooker Kruise Leeming has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him at Headingley until at least the end of the 2024 season.

The 25-year-old Leeming, who shares the hooking duties with Brad Dwyer, joined the Rhinos on a two-year deal from Huddersfield 12 months ago and won the Challenge Cup at Wembley in his first season.

Leeds head coach Richard Agar said: “I am pleased for Kruise that he has agreed a new long-term contract with the club.

“He is still only 25 and a player with great potential. We have got good competition for the hooking spot and that is only good for the squad as a whole.

“I think Kruise has worked hard to improve his game over the last season and I am sure he can continue that progression throughout 2021 and beyond.”

Leeming said: “It was an easy decision for me. The staff, players and fans have made me feel so welcome.

“To renew after just one year at the club says a lot. I am overwhelmed and thankful to Richard Agar in particular for the faith he has shown in me. My job now is to repay that faith over the next four years.”
