Scott Taylor signs new Robins deal

Hull KR's promising forward Scott Taylor has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The 20-year-old prop has come through the Robins' academy structure and made 13 Super League appearances for the club, nine of them so for this year.

"Scott has got a lot of potential," said Rovers coach Justin Morgan.

"He's got a really great work ethic for improving his game and he's got a thirst for knowledge.

"He's still only 20 but he's impressed me this year with his maturity on the training field and he has done well in the first team appearances he has made."

Taylor said: "I love this club. They've taught me everything I know and I'm happy to stay here for the rest of my career with the way I feel at the minute, so I'm just looking forward to the next two years."
