Jones-Buchanan is a one club man

Jamie Jones-Buchanan will see out the rest of his career at Leeds after signing a new deal.

Jones-Buchanan, 32, has signed a new three-year deal with his hometown team to make him a one-club man.

He said: “It is great to have agreed the new deal but, as everyone who knows me knows, there was never any intention from me to leave my club. 

“I am really excited about the new season and having the young guys involved in pre-season along with the new faces in Paul Aiton, Tom Briscoe and Andy Yates has given the whole place a lift. 

“I think the new First Utility Super League has the potential to be the best we have had for many years. With two teams getting relegated and, the feel good factor after the World Cup, the competition is going to be great.”

Jones-Buchanan has made 307 appearances for the Rhinos since making his debut in 1999, and has won three World Club Challenges and six Super League titles.

Head Coach Brian McDermott said: “Jamie is at the core of our club, not just because of what he does on the field but what he offers off the field as well. As part of the group of five players who have won all six Grand Finals, his place in the history books of the club are already assured but his enthusiasm for what still lays ahead helps to drive everyone on.”
