Sheens impressed by Hall's form
Hull KR coach Tim Sheens says Craig Hall has done his chances of earning a new contract no harm following his impressive recent form.
Hall returned for his second-spell at KR on a short-term deal from Leigh Centurions during last season's Middle 8s and he then signed a new contract at KCOM Craven Park for the 2019 season.
There were some eyebrows raised when the 31-year-old was only offered a 12-month extension and his performances this season have further underlined his importance to the KR cause.
The former Wakefield Trinity player's versatility has proven a particular asset for the Robins, as he has shined at full-back centre and on the wing this season.
Sheens has certainly been impressed by Hall's versatility and he believes that will do him no harm at all when it comes to negotiating a contract extension.
"That definitely hasn't hurt in his negotiations with us. He can play centre, on the wing or at full-back, we knew that when we took him on that he had the potential to do that," Sheens was quoted as saying by the Hull Daily Mail.
"Working with him as I have now from last year you start to realise the values of the guy and how talented he can be when he switches on."
