“I play my best rugby under Watto (Ian Watson) and I remember last time he extended (his contract) I did the same straight away.

“At the moment, we’ve got a great group, so my job as captain isn’t a difficult one. We’ve changed the culture since I first joined the club, with every player coming here to achieve.

“The players we’ve signed recently all have hunger and passion. They’ve come for the right reasons.”

Coach Ian Watson added: “It’s great to have Moose sign up for the next two years.

“He’s driven the standards of being a team that competes and challenges the best teams, by pushing players to be better and leading with his actions on and off the field.”
