Jack Render extends Featherstone stay

Featherstone have handed young winger Jack Render a one-year contract extension.

The 20-year-old will remain with the Rovers until at least the end of the 2020 campaign.

Render has scored two tries in 17 appearances for Featherstone after enjoying time in Castleford’s academy.

Featherstone coach Ryan Carr said: “He’s a great young kid and I’m really happy to get his deal over the line.

“He’s had a year off footy in between leaving Cas and coming to us and came to us late just before round one, so he missed out on a pre-season.

“We’ve all seen what he can do and I’m sure with a full pre-season with the club, he’ll only become better.”

Render added: “The deal was never in doubt for me.

“I’ve had a great year here learning new skills, getting to know a great set of lads and learning under some good coaches.

“It’s great to get the deal signed up and my future secured here. The goal for me now is to play as much as possible over the next 12 months.”
