Hull KR Willie Peters

Hull KR have announced utility back Will Tate has signed a new two-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2024 season.

The 20-year-old has made seven appearances in the Super League so far for the Robins. He has also had loan spells at Rochdale and Workington recently.

He made his debut in 2020 during their match against Leeds.

Speaking on his new deal, Tate told the club website: “I’m really happy to sign. I wanted to get it done as quickly as possible and I’m glad it’s happened soon in the year. I’m excited to stay at the club and keep doing what I’m doing.

“I spoke with my agent and I couldn’t wait to sign. The boys that have signed already can see where the club is going and where the group is going. I just want to be part of that as much as possible and play a big role in the future.

“I think there’s a good core of young lads at the club and the way we’ve progressed over the last few years and the changes I’ve seen in culture is something I want to be a part of.”

Hull KR chief admits Smith departure was a shock

Hull KR’s Chief Executive Officer Paul Lakin says Tony Smith’s departure announcement was a shock to all at the club.

Australian Smith, 55, will leave Craven Park at the end of the year. He has been the Robins head coach since 2019, leading them to the Play-Offs last term.

Back in April, his announcement came out of the blue during a press conference. It did however put an end to weeks of speculation surrounding his future. Prior to nephew Rohan getting the Leeds job, Smith had been heavily linked with a return to the Rhinos.
