Hull KR hooker Matt Parcell has signed a new deal for 2021, with the option for a further year extension.
Parcell, 27, joined from Leeds at the back end of last season, but has been limited to just 11 appearances after suffering an ankle injury in the second game of the 2020 season.
He said: “It’s good to get it all sorted. It’s been an interesting year and everyone’s had to roll with the punches, but it’s been good to get the deal over the line.
“Since we’ve come back the last couple weeks have been disappointing, but the months previous we have been playing some really good footy. As a team we are going to gain valuable experience over the next few months and that’s going to put us in good stead going forwards.
“Tony (Smith) is very very good at bringing out the best in players and making them feel confident on the field. He makes them play to the best of their ability and it’s fantastic to see. Over the coming months everyone is going to get a lot more game time and the experience that they are going to get will be really valuable.
“It’s been really enjoyable at Hull KR. To start with I had a few good games then got a couple serious injuries, but I feel really good now. I feel like I’m in really good shape, really good head space and I feel like I can get back to playing my best footy at Rovers and under Tony. Hopefully, fingers crossed I can stay injury free and play some really good rugby.”
Hull KR have a number of players off-contract at the end of the year, and have already handed a renewal to full-back Will Dagger, as well as signing forward George King from Wakefield.
