Reacting to the news, he said: “For me this year, it was quite an easy decision to re-sign, I didn’t want to look elsewhere or test the market.

“We’ve got some outstanding fullback and centre options for next season too, so if I can get in the team ahead of them or filling in for injuries or suspensions, I’ll be happy to take every opportunity as it comes and do my job for the team.”

Speaking on the re-signing, Head Coach Daryl Powell added: “Sticks has been our most improved player I think, he has slotted in and been as consistent as ever.

“He just works so hard on his game, he is so committed to what he does and one of the players who works the hardest and is reaping the rewards. I’m delighted to see him sign this extension, I’m looking forward to working with him and seeing how far he can improve and grow as a player.”
