St Helens center Konrad Hurrell has signed a one-year contract extension to stay with the club for a second season. The Tonga international joined Super League champions Leeds Rhinos earlier this year.

After a solid first half of the campaign in which he scored five tries in 15 appearances, Hurrell was committed to another twelve months at Totally Wicked Stadium. The 30-year-old believes he has been able to change his playing career since he joined, so he couldn’t turn down an offer to stay on longer.

He said: “I signed for the Saints for a year last season and it was a case of seeing how I went from there. Personally I didn’t have a great year and I felt like I needed to turn it around by coming to a club with a great atmosphere, great players and staff to try and get my game back to where it needed to be.
