Off-contract at the end of the season, the Hull Kingston Rovers moved swiftly to retain talented player Graeme Horne, re-signing him on a 2-year deal.
The deal will run through until the 2015 Super League season, with Horne, 28, playing in 44 games to date for the club, with the man himself pleased that he has been given a chance to stay at the club.
â€œI am over the moon to sign a new two-year deal,â€ he said.
â€œI have had a great two years at the club so far and have really enjoyed it. The fans have been fantastic and I feel at home here.
â€œThe club have been absolutely great to me, weâ€™ve got an excellent bunch of lads and itâ€™s a pleasure to be here. Weâ€™re all at home with each other and we all have a laugh together do electronic cigarettes really work.
â€œI did a lot of travelling when I was at Huddersfield and being close to home is what I want, so Iâ€™m delighted to be staying for another two years. The stability at the club is important too and Iâ€™ve learnt a lot off Sandy (Craig Sandercock), so to extend my contract with Rovers is brilliant.â€
Also pleased with the re-signing is Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock, who sees Horne as a consistent performer for the side.
â€œGraeme has been a solid performer for us during the past two seasons and Iâ€™m delighted that heâ€™ll be here for the next couple of years, as heâ€™s an important member of our squad,” said Sandercock.
“Heâ€™s a real professional who can fill various roles in the side so itâ€™s great to have him on board for the next couple of years at least.â€
