Gardner extends loan switch

Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock has confirmed the Super League club have extended the loan of winger Ade Gardner to the end of the season.

Gardner moved east from St Helens to ease an injury crisis at the KC Lightstream Stadium and he has impressed Sandercock enough for the deal to be lengthened.

"Ade has been terrific for us while he's been here," said Sandercock.

"He's the ultimate professional and has brought plenty of experience and talk to the side."
