Clarkson signs up to remain a Rhino
Saturday 24 December 2011
Leeds loose forward Chris Clarkson has agreed a new five-year contract with the Super League champions.
The 21-year-old Clarkson, who burst on the scene two years ago as a teenager, has already played twice at Wembley in the Challenge Cup final and was a member of the Rhinos side which won the Grand Final in October.
"I had a couple of years to go on my old contract but I was more than happy to agree a new, longer-term contract," he said. "We have something very special at the Rhinos and I want to be a big part of taking that forward."
Leeds' coach Brian McDermott said: "It is well documented about the spirit and commitment between our squad, and people like Chris are at the heart of that."
