Hooker Denive Balmforth has signed a one-year extension to keep him at Hull FC.

The 20-year-old has impressed for the Black and Whites in recent appearances, with tries in the defeat by Warrington Wolves and victory over Leeds Rhinos.

Balmforth is the latest product of the club's youth system to sign up for them after Jack Charles, Davy Litten, Lewis Martin and Logan Moy put pen to new deals, while Harvey Barron, Zach Jebson and Matty Laidlaw took up options to remain for another season.

Director of rugby Richie Myler told the club website: “The fact he has backed himself by just wanting to sign a one-year deal, in order to earn an even bigger contract with the club further down the line, is exactly the sort of attitude we look to instil in our young players.”
