Mikey Lewis in major long-term deal

Hull KR have confirmed Mikey Lewis has signed an improved four-year deal keeping the exciting young halfback at Hull College Craven Park until the end of 2025.

The news comes on the back of a breakout year for the Robins’ maverick half, scoring 8 tries in 13 appearances.

The newly-capped England Knight was delighted to sign on to stay at Hull College Craven Park as he takes in the past year and looks onto 2022: “I’m over the moon. It was an easy decision for myself. It didn’t take me long to sign the contract.

“It was a rollercoaster alright (2021), to play at one of the greatest stadiums in the world (Wembley) was a fantastic feeling and then going 80 minutes close to a Grand Final was a great achievement. But Tony (Smith) has kept me level-headed every step of the way to make sure I’m doing my job to the best I could.

“I’m very excited for 2022. We’ve seen a few glimpses of what we can do as a team. With the recruitment we’ve done, the team we’ve got, and the injured boys coming back like Elliot (Minchella). It’s very exciting, we think we can go that one step further this year and it starts with this pre-season.”

Tony Smith was pleased to see the Robins’ exciting young halfback secure a well-deserved extension: “It’s terrific news for both Mikey and the club. He’s (Mikey) really stepped up another level, he’s got a few more to come and he’ll certainly achieve those levels, I’m sure of it.

“He sets his sights pretty high, which is great. He’s certainly made some big advancements this year. He’s earned it, he deserves it and he’s going to continue to improve.”
