Jordan Cox has become the third young player in a month to pledge his future to Hull KR after signing a contract extension.

The prop or second row forward has re-signed at the KC Lightstream Stadium in an extension that will see him remain at the club until the end of 2016.

Cox celebrated his 22nd birthday earlier in the week and will now have ample time to add to his 48 first-team appearances for the Robins.

"I love the club, it's my hometown club and we've got a great bunch of lads here. I really believe we've got the chance to achieve something with the squad we've got."

He told the club's website "I love the club, it's my hometown club and we've got a great bunch of lads here. I really believe we've got the chance to achieve something with the squad we've got.

Relieved

"Personally, I get on really well with Sandy and the coaching staff too so it's good to get it all sorted out because it's been playing on my mind a little bit.

"All I've wanted to do is focus on my rugby but it is a bit distracting when it's your future and you keep hearing stories about other clubs supposedly being interested in you.

"I'm really happy I'll be staying here and the aim now is to establish a regular place in the side over the next couple of years. I've been having a few good games and then dipping off a bit, so I want to be more consistent and hopefully get picked for the England Knights again."

Also signing new two-year deals are fellow academy graduates James Green and Macauley Hallet.
