Mikey Lewis’ decision to stay longer at Craven Park has Hull KR manager Willie Peters “extremely happy…

Mikey Lewis, an England player, signed a new contract with Hull KR that would keep him at Craven Park until at least the end of 2028, securing his long-term future with the team.

The 22-year-old half-back had a deal with the Robins that expired at the end of 2025, but he has already signed an extension that will keep him with the team through at least the conclusion of the 2028 season.

Since making his debut for Hull KR in 2019, Lewis has amassed 32 tries in 71 games.

The playmaker, who was born in Hull, participated in the team’s Challenge Cup final loss to Leigh Leopards earlier this year and enabled Willie Peters’ team to go to the Super League playoffs.

Lewis also received a call-up to the England senior team in recognition of his outstanding club season. He participated in two games for Shaun Wane’s team during their 3-0 series victory over Tonga.

After Lewis signed a long-term contract extension with Hull KR, he commented, “I’m thrilled to be signing this new agreement.” I’m content with my current situation and excited for what lies ahead.

“For me, this year has been enormous. We’ve progressed tremendously as a team over the past few years, as evidenced by our performance last year—where we advanced to the Challenge Cup final, placed fourth, and advanced to the play-off semifinals.

“Playing for England was very important to my family and me.” The past three weeks have been a lot of fun for myself and everyone else involved.

“I’m just a Hull boy pursuing his dream, and I’m at a loss for words when it comes to getting to wear the England jersey.” I simply cherished every second of it.

Lewis is one of the top players in the Super League, according to Hull KR manager Peters, who claims that “only a few players” in Lewis’ locker has those attributes.

“I’m really happy to see Mikey extend his time at Hull KR,” Peters stated.

As a homegrown player who progressed through our system, Mikey’s current status is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those at the club who have contributed to his development.

It’s tremendous for the club and couldn’t have happened without our board’s outstanding support. Our goal is to retain our in-house talent at the club for an extended period of time. By giving Mikey a five-year contract and Jez Litten a long-term one, we have undoubtedly demonstrated that.

“If you look at Mikey’s season, he participated in almost all of the games. The thing that most pleases me is witnessing Mikey’s development both as a player and a person. He’s come a long way with me this year.

He carried the team on his shoulders at points this season when he was the only recognized spine player on the field.

“I felt he performed that really well. At the beginning of the year, he didn’t feel comfortable taking on some responsibilities, but doing so helped him improve.

“Thereafter, he was justly rewarded by being included in the England squad. In these first two matches (against Tonga), it just demonstrates where he is at with his rugby. He was the primary difference, particularly in the opening match against Tonga.

“Just a select few athletes has the attributes that Mikey does. He will soon be among the top players in this competition if he continues to put in the necessary effort and makes the necessary sacrifices.
