Rising star Jack Sinfield has signed a new three-year deal with Leeds that will see him remain with the Rhinos until at least the end of 2026.

The 18-year-old, son of rugby league legend Kevin, has made six appearances for the Rhinos since making his first team debut last season.

Sinfield, who is currently sitting his A Level exams, was recalled to Rohan Smith’s 21-man squad for Sunday’s trip to Wakefield after passing his concussion return to play protocols.

Jack Sinfield ‘really happy’ to extend Headingley stay

On his new deal, Sinfield said: “I am really happy here and I see the Rhinos as the place I want to be.

“Rohan Smith and the rest of the staff have been great with me during my A Level studies.

“You only get one shot at your A levels and it has been really important to me that I make sure I can smash my studies and then I’m free to focus on my rugby. 

“I am still young and the main thing for me is to pick up more experience where I can and learn from each opportunity. Every bit of game time I can get is going to be beneficial in the long run.

“I have enjoyed my time in the reserves this year and playing alongside the other young lads who are coming through at the Rhinos

“I feel like I am improving under Rohan and the staff; and I know I need to keep working hard. I speak with Rohan regularly and have a good relationship with him.

“And I know I need to keep pushing and I am excited about what is to come with this group of players in the years ahead.

“There is a really good crop of young players coming through and I think the Rhinos are in good hands.”
