Hull KR forward Mose Masoe has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The 29-year-old has been a key player for Rovers since he arrived ahead of the 2017 season and has made 25 appearances so far, scoring three tries.

Masoe was out-of-contract at the end of the season but he revealed that he never wanted to go anywhere else.

The ex-Samoa international said: “I’m stoked with the new contract, there’s a lot of great people at this club and I’m happy to be staying here.

“Off the field, my family have really settled into the area. One of my kids is at school, the other is enjoying nursery and my missus is in a routine. We’ve all been made to feel welcome and a happy family makes life easier for me. Everything is going well and whilst that might not have always shown on the field, we’ve got a great group of boys here and that made this decision even easier.

“It’s been a tough year for injuries but it’s good to have a lot of the lads back now because I see a lot of potential in this side. We’ve got some good older guys and some great young kids coming through. We’ve lost some real 50/50 matches this season where I don’t think we were mentally ready, but everybody across the club is working hard to get better.

“For me personally, I’ve been pretty happy with how I’ve been going but I’ve still got a lot of things to work on, which is good. I know deep down that there’s still more I could be contributing to the team, but I’m just happy to be back playing footy week in, week out for a great club.”
