The new deal will keep the 20-year-old prop at Emerald Headingley until at least the end of the 2022 season.

He made his debut in 2017 but cemented his place in the first team squad last season with 22 appearances.

His form for the Rhinos earned him a place in the England Knights squad that travelled to Papua New Guinea this Autumn.

It is great to have my new contract all sorted. My first contract was a five year deal and this one is another long term commitment from the club to me and vice versa. I have signed the new deal because I believe Leeds is one of the greatest clubs in the world and I want to play here. I am very happy with the new contract, I am looking forward to the new season and trying to help the side win some silverware.

I am grateful for the opportunities I have had at the club. It means a lot to me that Kevin Sinfield, Gary Hetherington, Dave Furner and our staff have faith in me and what I can achieve. I want to return that belief by playing my best rugby in the years ahead.

Dave Furner has been great in training. He has introduced a lot of fresh aspects to our training which the younger players in particular are really thriving on. We know we have a clean slate and he is going to give us a chance but it is down to us to make the most of that opportunity. Every player wants to achieve big things and take Leeds back to where we think we belong.
