Leigh Leopards: England prop Robbie Mulhern signs new two-year deal

England prop Robbie Mulhern has signed a new deal to keep him with Leigh Leopards until the end of 2026.

Mulhern, 29, joined Leigh last year from Warrington Wolves on a two-year deal, and has now added two more years.

He helped Leigh finish fifth in Super League, and win the Challenge Cup for the first time since 1971.

Mulhern's good form saw him win his second England cap against Tonga, five years after he made his debut.

He played in last Saturday's third Test, making him the first Leigh player to represent England for 39 years.

"I have really enjoyed my time at Leigh since my first day," Mulhern told the club's website. "There is a good camaraderie between the players and staff and I was delighted when we won the cup.

"We set our goals at the start of the season and thought that with the quality we had in the team we should achieve a top-six finish.

"Obviously, we hit that target but to win the cup was unbelievable and something I'll never forget."
