New Hull deal for Brough

Danny Brough, hero of Hull's Powergen Challenge Cup triumph this year, has signed a new two-year contract which will keep him at the KC Stadium at least until the end of the 2007 engage Super League season.

The 22-year-old former York half-back had a year left on his existing deal but he has now been given an upgrade.

"I had a special debut season with the club and I am now looking forward to many more," he said. "I feel that I have a lot more to prove."

In other news, Castleford have made their first overseas signing since clinching their return to Super League with the capture of Penrith?s reserve centre Luke Dyer on a two-year contract.

The 24-year-old Dyer, who has made just one appearance in Australia?s National Rugby League, can also play in the second row. As a British passport holder, he will not count on the club?s overseas quota.

"Our new coach Terry Matterson knows Luke well and feels that he can make his mark in Super League and be a big asset to us next year," said Tigers chief executive Richard Wright.
