FEATHERSTONE Rovers back rower Matty Dale has signed a new two-year extended contract that will keep him with the reigning Co-operative Championship title holders until at least the end of 2014.

The 25-year-old former Hull player has made nearly 100 appearances for Featherstone.

Rovers coach Daryl Powell said: "Matty has been a model of consistency during my time at the club. He is one of the cornerstones of the team so I am naturally very pleased that he has agreed to remain at Featherstone Rovers for the next two years. We are now close to agreeing the retention of an outstanding group of players."

Dale said: "I’m over the moon to have agreed a new deal at Featherstone Rovers. The coaching staff has shown great faith in me and I’m really enjoying playing rugby at Featherstone in a successful side. We are building another strong squad for 2013 and beyond and I can’t wait to be a part of it."
