Ben Crooks on his future at Hull KR with his contract expiring at the end of the Super League season

Ben Crooks has become part of the furniture at Craven Park since making the move to Hull KR back in 2019.

He has made over 60 appearances for Rovers in that time – the most amount of appearances he has made at any club during his career so far.

But, Crooks is out of contract at the end of the year and has spoken of his desire to stay.

“I’ve not opened contract talks as of yet as I’ve only played five games this year due to injury – the good start at the start of the year kept me out but I’ve got my chance now and I need to keep building on that.

“You get a generalised letter come 1st May that the club hasn’t made a decision yet.

“The ball is in my court with my performances and I don’t mind it that way – I have an agent for all the political side of it.

“My job is to do what i can on the field, but of course I love being here.

“I haven’t been shy around the fact that I love this club; I love what they’ve done for me and my family and my career.”

It will be all chance for the Robins heading into the 2023 season with new head coach Willie Peters being confirmed earlier this week to take over from Tony Smith.

“From a player’s standpoint it’s great that the club has someone sorted for next year but for us our head coach at the minute is Tony and we’ve still got aspirations for the rest of the year and that’s mainly our focus,” Crooks continued.

“My job doesn’t change; I’ve still got to go out there and impress to earn a contract – I’ve got to get back to form.
