Pheonix Laulu-Togaga’e’s future is settled as he signed a two-year extension to his current deal taking his stay at Hull KR at least until 2025.
The versatile young man played in the halves, at hooker and fullback last year for the Robins in his breakout season and he has clearly impressed new boss Willie Peters who has awarded him this new contract.
That’s the view of PLT himself who said on the club website: “I’m very happy with it. It shows that Willie is pretty happy with what he’s seen so far from me, coming into this professional environment just over a year ago has helped me develop massively already.”
He also reflected on the benefits of pre-season which he says has challenged him:
“This year, pre-season has been really challenging in a good way. I’ve learned more than I’ve ever learned in such a small amount of time. It’s definitely stepped up from last year, the higher intensity has helped me and the boys a lot, not only skill wise but fitness wise too, I think.”
Meanwhile, PLT has said he is revelling in learning from three-time Super League Champion Lachlan Coote, Super League’s all-time leading try scorer and Leeds Rhinos legend Danny McGuire and new boss Peter:
“As a young player I try to soak up as much as I can from the experienced boys. Having players like Cootie around me in my position and coaches who have played in the halves like Willie (Peters) and Danny (McGuire) is great. I’m excited for what the future holds.”
