Back rower Rob Spicer has penned a new deal which will keep him at Dewsbury Rams for an eighth successive season in 2016.
The popular figure joined the Rams from York in 2009 and has played 138 games, more than any other player currently at the club.
Spicer was delighted to agree an extension to remain at Tetley’s Stadium, saying: “I’m very happy here and it was pleasing to know the club wanted to offer me a new contract.
“I didn’t hesitate in signing up for another year and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us as a team.”
The Rams have already agreed deals for brothers Luke and Toby Adamson, along with on loan hooker Nathan Conroy, to remain next season but there is the pressing matter of targeting a Kingstone Press Championship Grand Final appearance for the crop of 2015.
Dewsbury are already guaranteed a home semi-final and moved to within a point of leaders Featherstone Rovers following last week’s terrific 34-16 win at Post Office Road.
Rovers face a tricky trip to Hunslet tonight (Friday) with the Hawks in desperate need for points in their fight against relegation.
Dewsbury travel to relegated Doncaster on Sunday (2pm) when they could have the chance to go top, or will be aiming to take the league leadership race into the final round of Super 8s matches.
Coach Glenn Morrison said: “We want to keep winning as many as we can and get to the final and hopefully get some silverware for the club.
“The squad is in a good place at the moment and hopefully we can keep getting some victories like Sunday’s.
“We’ve been winning games and not playing our best but on Sunday I thought they stuck at what we asked.”
