Full-back Ben Cockayne has signed a new three-year deal to keep him at Hull KR until the end of the 2011 season.

Cockayne, who has made 163 appearances since joining the club from amateur club Normanton Knights, was out of contract at Craven Park.

"It's great to be offered a three-year deal," said the 25-year-old.

"I'm looking forward to next season and helping the team win some silverware. I've had a few injuries this year and it will be good to start afresh."

Rovers coach Justin Morgan said: "This is terrific news for the club. To retain a top player like Ben is testament to the side that we are developing and building here."
