Rovers back signs extension

Hull KR have confirmed Ben Crooks has signed a contract extension at the club until the end of 2021.

Crooks signed for the club on an initial loan deal from Leigh Centurions in 2018, and has scored 20 tries in 39 games for the Robins.

He started 2020 in fine form, with eight tries in six matches, and was the top try scorer in the Super League before picking up a calf injury after the restart.

He told the club website: “I’m over the moon to have it sorted. I’ve been in talks with Tony throughout the year knowing that I was out of contract.

“Circumstances haven’t really helped this year, whether it is injury or what’s going on in the world, but it was one of those things I had to keep working on, keep my head down and work hard.

“One thing I’ve always had in the back of my mind when I picked up that neck injury at the start of the year was ‘everything could be a lot worse’.

“I felt good despite what it was, and when we went into lockdown it came as a bit of a silver-lining for me and I managed to get back fit without missing too many games.”
