New deals for Hull KR duo

Hull KR have awarded two of their younger squad members with new contracts.

Back-row forwards Aaron Ollett and Steven Holker - who were both members of the Super League club's academy system - have put pen to paper on two-year deals.

Ollett, 21, made his Super League debut last June and has been a regular first-team performer in recent weeks.

He said: "It's a weight off my shoulders to sign a new deal and now I want to kick on and have another strong season next year.

"I've been pleased with the amount of games I've had at the back end of this season and I feel as though I've been able to prove my worth to the club.

"It's now up to me to cement a regular first team spot next season."

Holker, 18, has yet to play a Super League match having spent most of the current season on the injury list.
