Broadbent agrees new two year Rhinos deal

Young Leeds Rhinos back Jack Broadbent, 20, has agreed a new two year contract with the club that will keep him at Emerald Headingley at least until the end of the 2022 Super League season. 

The former Batley Boys junior made his debut during 2020 for the Rhinos and he says he is looking forward to building on that achievement next season, he added, “I’m flying in pre-season at the moment and I am loving it. I have been able to set some personal bests in the tests and gym work we do and that is giving me a lot of confidence for this year. I’ve never felt better and the challenge now is to try and stay fresh so I can keep striving forward every day. 

“Making my debut last year was an amazing feeling. I have got my shirt up on my bedroom wall at home and walking past it every morning as I get ready to come training reminds me what I am doing it all for. A year ago I was lucky enough to play in the Rob Burrow game in front of a full stadium and that feeling has stayed with me and I want to do everything I can to get that opportunity again,” added Broadbent. 

Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Richard Agar added, “Jack is working incredibly hard in pre-season and has made a quality contribution to the group over the last year. He is an outstanding young professional who really looks after himself. He thoroughly deserves his new contract and I am looking forward to seeing how he develops over the next two years.”
