Leeds youngster Jack Broadbent signs new deal

Leeds have given a new two-year contract to utility back Jack Broadbent which will keep him at Headingley at least until the end of 2022.

The 20-year-old made three Super League appearances in 2020 and has also had spells in the Championship with Featherstone and Batley.

Leeds head coach Richard Agar said: “Jack is working incredibly hard in pre-season and has made a quality contribution to the group over the last year.

“He thoroughly deserves his new contract and I am looking forward to seeing how he develops over the next two years.”

Broadbent said: “I’m flying in pre-season at the moment and I am loving it. I have been able to set some personal bests in the tests and gym work we do and that is giving me a lot of confidence for this year.

“I’ve never felt better and the challenge now is to try and stay fresh so I can keep striving forward every day.

“Making my debut last year was an amazing feeling. I have got my shirt up on my bedroom wall at home and walking past it every morning as I get ready to come training reminds me what I am doing it all for.

“A year ago I was lucky enough to play in the Rob Burrow game in front of a full stadium and that feeling has stayed with me and I want to do everything I can to get that opportunity again.”
