Hull KR reward star with new two-year contract

Hull KR have announced that Matty Storton has signed a new, two-year contract extension, keeping the versatile forward at Hull College Craven Park until 2024.

Only 22-years-old, Storton has become an important part of the Robins’ engine room since his debut against Wakefield Trinity in Round One of the 2020 Betfred Super League season.

Playing in all but two games in 2021, the former Bradford Bulls’ junior is able to play in the second-row and at prop and Storton was delighted to extend his stay: “I’m over the moon, it was a no-brainer really when I got approached by the club to sign the extension – I snapped their hand off.

“All the coaching staff believe in me. It was an easy decision. I’m really happy about the transition to playing prop. I want to push on to that starting spot and hopefully over the next few years become a regular in that starting 13.

“I’m learning from a lot of good players at the club and they’re all hitting their primes – so I’m learning from the best really.

Speaking on the extension, Tony Smith can’t wait to see how Storton goes in the future: “He’s going to keep on advancing his career and he’s really keen to stay with us.

“Matty’s doing a good job for us at the moment but we know his best years are still to come. I think he’ll really kick on and shine in the following seasons. I’m looking forward to working with Matty for the next, three and a half years.”
