Hull KR head coach Craig Sandercock has accepted the offer of a new 12-month contract.

The 44-year-old Australian’s current two-year deal was due to expire at the end of the Super League season but he has agreed to stay in charge until the end of 2014.

“I’ve said all along that I’d love to stay,” Sandercock said. “I’m glad that the contract situation is sorted now and I can concentrate on continuing with the job that myself, my staff and the players have started over the past 18 months.

“There is no quick fix as you have to put systems and structures in place and that’s what we’ve been doing.

“With the amount of promising, young talent we have, I firmly believe that this great club has a very bright future and I’m obviously keen to play a part in that.

“The board have been extremely supportive of me since I’ve been here, as have the supporters, and we also have a terrific group of players and staff who work hard every day.

“We’ll just keep working hard collectively.”
