Young Leeds Rhinos back Jack Broadbent has agreed a new two year contract with the club to keep him at the club until the end of the 2022 Super League season.
Broadbent came through the academy at the Rhinos, making his debut in 2020. He made his debut during their 34-6 defeat against Catalans Dragons.
He also had loan spells with Batley Bulldogs and Featherstone Rovers.
Reacting to the news, he said:“I’m flying in pre-season at the moment and I am loving it. I have been able to set some personal bests in the tests and gym work we do and that is giving me a lot of confidence for this year. I’ve never felt better and the challenge now is to try and stay fresh so I can keep striving forward every day.
“Making my debut last year was an amazing feeling. I have got my shirt up on my bedroom wall at home and walking past it every morning as I get ready to come training reminds me what I am doing it all for.
“A year ago I was lucky enough to play in the Rob Burrow game in front of a full stadium and that feeling has stayed with me and I want to do everything I can to get that opportunity again.”
Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Richard Agar added: “Jack is working incredibly hard in pre-season and has made a quality contribution to the group over the last year. He is an outstanding young professional who really looks after himself. He thoroughly deserves his new contract and I am looking forward to seeing how he develops over the next two years.”
