Netherton extends Rovers stay


11th October 2013

Hull KR forward Jason Netherton has signed a new 12-month deal with the club which will enable him to qualifiy for a testimonial in 2014 to mark 10 years' service.

The Hull-born prop, 31, has made 174 appearances for the club since joining them from Leeds Rhinos in 2004 and was a member of their promotion-winning team of 2006.

"I'm really proud to have reached 10 years with the club and it's a great honour for both myself and my family," Netherton said.

"The club have shown a lot of faith in me over the past 10 years and hopefully I've repaid that faith."

Hull KR chief executive Mike Smith said: "Jason is an honest professional both on and off the pitch and has given outstanding service to Hull KR during the past decade.

"He's achieved something which is quite rare within the sport nowadays and should be extremely proud of the contribution he has made to the club."
