Edmund came through the three qualifying rounds at the Australian Open in January and the 20-year-old is on course to repeat the feat after this dominant display against Hanescu, 13 years his senior.

The 6ft 6in Romanian reached the quarter-finals at Roland Garros in 2005 but injuries have hampered him since and he was unable to keep up with Edmund's energy and weight of shot.

The Briton asserted his authority early on with a number of stinging forehands and Hanescu was unable to respond, losing his serve in the fourth and sixth games before surrendering the set.

Edmund continued to find winners from the back but it was a missed volley from Hanescu that gave him an early break in the second and he lost only one more game thereafter to seal a classy victory in one hour and seven minutes.

It has been a fantastic time in my career to be part of the Leeds Rhinos team and I want that to continue. This is the best club in Rugby League and the only club I have ever known. I cannot imagine ever being anywhere else and, having grown up supporting the club, it makes it extra special that I will be able to start and finish my career here. That is something I have always wanted to do.

– Rob Burrow

We are pleased to have agreed a new deal with Rob for the next two years. His commitment to the Rhinos and determination to succeed are great examples for any young player coming through the ranks. He remains a threat to all teams in Super League with his unique skills set and he has the ability to unlock any game, as we have seen on so many occasions before.
