Kane Linnett signs new Hull KR contract

Hull KR have announced that Kane Linnett has signed a new one-year extension with the club for 2022, with the option to extend.

Linnett, 32, has scored eight tries in nine appearances in the Super League so far this season, earning a new contract under head coach Tony Smith.

The Scotland international joined Hull KR ahead of the 2019 season from NRL outfit North Queensland Cowboys, having made his first-team debut for Sydney Roosters in 2010.

Linnett said: “I’m pretty pumped because I didn’t want to go anywhere else. I think that this club is building in the right direction. My first year or two was quite tough but I think that Tony is building a really good team.

“It’s a great bunch of boys who I’ve really been enjoying my footy with, so there was no doubt that I wanted to stay and hopefully finish my career here.”

Head coach Smith added: “He’s just a great professional. Kane trains hard, gets about his business, he turns up and does his work as best as he can. He is a bit quiet but he’s not shy, he speaks up when he feels it is necessary.

“He is another person that is very well respected in the group. He does most of his talking in the way he goes about his business. He’s an inspirational kind of man that is solid in everything that he does.

“He’s a massive contributor that gets through a huge workload and he’s always consistent about it.”
