Salter staying with KR

Salter staying with KR

Centre Liam Salter has agreed to stay with Hull KR for the 2017 season.

The 23-year-old came through the Rovers' academy system but a shoulder injury meant he was unable to stop the club suffering relegation from the Super League earlier this month, after losing to Salford in the Million Pound Game.

However, new boss Tim Sheens has been busy signing-up his players for next term and Salter has become the latest to agree to stay at Craven Park.

The centre has racked up 82 appearances since making his debut in 2012 and the club's Head of Rugby Jamie Peacock admits he is pleased to have convinced the star to stay put.

Peacock told the club's official website: "It's important that we build a competitive squad for next season and beyond around a core of home-grown players who come from the city and understand the culture of the club.

"Liam certainly fits into that category and his attitude and application is exemplary. On the field, he is very strong defensively and whilst there are parts of his game he is working hard to improve, he's deservedly been a first team regular for most of his career at the club and still has plenty of time on his side."
