Louix Gorman's Craven Park goal outlined after landing Hull KR contract boost

Hull KR's most highly-rated prospect has signed a new long-term contract with the club. Louix Gorman has penned a new three-year deal with the Robins, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2027 season.

Gorman has established himself as a player with a bright future. He made his debut for the Robins last year against Wigan Warriors, but he really made his mark in the pre-season, catching the eye of the coaching staff due to his development in training, and then backing that up with a superb performance against Sheffield Eagles in the pre-season trial match.

A versatile outside back, Gorman has continued to impress in the season, featuring both for the reserves and for the club's dual-reg partner, Featherstone Rovers, in the Championship. Head coach Willie Peters has spoken of his belief that Gorman will become a regular first-team player for Rovers in the future, with the new deal allowing him to continue through that pathway.

"I’m really happy to sign a new three-year deal," said Gorman, who played for Yorkshire Under 18's last year. "It’s a big step in the right direction to say where I want to go in the future. I’d like to thank Willie (Peters) and the coaching staff throughout the club for their help in getting me here.’

"The one thing I want to do is play at home in a Super League game. There isn’t much that compares to that atmosphere. If I can nail down a spot and play regular rugby for the first team then I’ll be a happy man."

Peters added: "We’re really pleased to sign Louix to a new deal. He’s one of our Academy graduates and one of our own. He came through the juniors at Beverley Braves and then through our Academy system.

"Louix is a pleasure to coach and he lives the Hull KR Way every day. He’s a quality person and that’s what we want in our club. We want more Academy players to come through with Louix’s work ethic and attitude."
