Rovers coach Justin Morgan added: "The decision to extend the loan period for Ian is testament to his hard work and determined character.
"He's willing to learn and possess the qualities that enable him to develop as an individual and as a team player. He has definitely impressed me with his game."
The Saints have also confirmed that Hardman will be available to play against them on Sunday when the champions make the journey to East Hull.
Rovers, currently in their maiden engage Super League season, sit in 11th position in the table, three points ahead of bottom club Salford Reds.
