Elliot Minchella signs huge long-term deal at Hull KR as he has say on Tony Smith departure

Hull KR have confirmed Elliot Minchella has committed his future to the club, signing a four-year deal to remain at Sewell Group Craven Park until the end of 2026.

The influential back-rower has come back with a bang in 2022 and his impressive form has been rewarded with a new deal that will see him continue to be an integral part of the Robins’ foundations for years to come.

Since his return, the agile back-rower has helped the side to win seven of their last nine games. Able to play at loose forward, second-row and in the halves, Minchella is one of Super League’s in-form back-rowers, able to split open up defence through his sharp footwork and devastating passing game.

Speaking on his new deal, Robins’ Vice-Captain, Minchella was delighted to be staying at Hull KR until 2026:

“Yeah, I’m very happy. I’m happy where I am and since I’ve joined the club both the people at Hull KR and the fans have welcomed me,  I love it here. I’m very happy to commit for the next four years, it’s an exciting time at the club.

“I want to thank Tony for bringing me to the club, he was the one who gave me the opportunity to play Super League again. If it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t be here now.

“I’m looking forward to the future and we’re going to have a new coach. We all rip in and buy in now and we’ll all do the same for the next man in charge.

“It’s an exciting time because there’s a lot of young English players that are contracted at the club and we’ve got that core base of our team that’s going to be here for the next three to four years.

“We’re on a great run at the minute, five in a row, and we want to extend that. Then in a couple of weeks, we’re in a semi-final and we want to finish in the play-offs as well.

“It’s very positive at the moment and we want to keep building. I’ll be doing everything I can to help us be successful.

“I think me and my family will move over to Hull and I think that’s a big part of it. For the next four years, we’re absolutely buying into the Hull KR way of life and that excites me. I’m fully committed to the club and my future at Hull KR.

“As much as there’s a lot of talent in the group – it’s the group of players as human beings that’s the best part. The talent is there, but it’s also a great group to be around. Everybody’s friends and there are no egos. When you’ve got that, it’s awesome to be a part of.”
