DEWSBURY Rams prop forward Jack Teanby has signed a new contract with the club which will see him remain at the Tetley’s Stadium until the end of 2017.
Head coach Glenn Morrison brought the 19-year-old to Dewsbury midway through the 2015 campaign, and following a solid pre-season, which saw Teanby collect two man-of-the-match awards, the former Wakefield Trinity Wildcats forward has now put himself in contention for a regular place in Morrison’s first team squad.
On the extension Teanby, said: “It is really good to sign on, especially when I am at such a young age.
“There is a lot of competition within the squad so trying to get in at forward is pretty tough, I am just hoping that I have done enough now and that getting the new contract puts myself forward.
“At the moment I just want to keep my shirt and keep playing for the first team.”
Teanby was part of the Reserves side that defeated Leigh Centurions to win last year’s Grand Final in an impressive last-gasp victory.
The youngster did feature in Dewsbury Rams’ squad that narrowly beat Swinton last weekend, but unfortunately picked up an injury to his eye shortly after coming on as a substitute.
But the knock is not expected to rule Teanby out long-term.
