Leeds Rhinos winger Ash Handley has signed a contract extension at the club until the end of the 2024 season.
Handley made his debut for the Rhinos back in 2014 having come through the club’s academy after signing from Oulton Raiders as a junior.
He has since gone on to amass 78 tries in 124 appearances for the club including finishing as top try scorer in Super League in 2020.
Reacting to the news, he said, “I was delighted to be offered a new deal and happy to have extended my contract with my home town club.
“I was under contract until 2023 anyway but having spoken to Kevin Sinfield, the club have always looked to reward players who do well with new deals and it has been nice to have that recognised.
“It is a big year for all the English players in Super League with a home World Cup on the horizon at the end of the year and I will be going out to do my best for Leeds every week to try and put myself in contention.”
Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield added: “We are pleased to be able to reward Ash with a new deal. He has been a shining light for the team over the last few seasons and is one of the best in the world in his position.
“We believe he is ready to move onto the next level of his career in the coming years and I am delighted he will do that as a Rhino.”
