Richie Myler extends Leeds Rhinos contract

Leeds Rhinos fullback Richie Myler has agreed a new three-year deal with the club that will keep him at the Emerald Headingley Stadium until the end of the 2024 Betfred Super League season. 

Myler joined Leeds from Catalans Dragons in 2018 and helped the club in lifting the Challenge Cup in 2020 with a Lance Todd trophy-winning performance at Wembley Stadium against Salford Red Devils.

Myler said: “I am really pleased to have got my new deal finalised and I am looking forward to the next three years. 

“There is an incredible family atmosphere at the club, and I cannot wait to be part of what this group can achieve in the next few years. I have been fortunate to play for a number of clubs in my career, but I feel like I have found a home here at Leeds. 

“Richard Agar has done a tremendous job of moving the club forward and I am excited to see the strength in depth we have this season within our squad. 

“The club have shown their intent by bringing in world class talent and we have got an exciting crop of young players. When you look across our squad, everyone can do a job for the team, and I am looking forward to playing my part. There is competition for every position in the side and that brings out the best in all of us.”

Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Richard Agar added: “I am really pleased for Richie that he has agreed this new deal.

“A couple of seasons ago, he found himself at a crossroads and he has reinvented himself and taken on a number of roles within our squad. He is an important player for us at fullback, as we saw with his Lance Todd trophy-winning performance in 2020, but he also brings versatility in a number of key positions. 

“He has evolved into a great team player and a real clubman. He has settled into life at the Rhinos and I know he calls Leeds his home now and this is a just reward for his hard work and effort.”
