Huddersfield Giants have given academy graduate Jake Wardle a new contract to keep him at the club until the end of the 2020 season.
Wardle is out to repay the Giants for the faith they have shown in him after spending two years on the sidelines with knee and ankle injuries before finally making his Super League debut last month.
He scored two tries against Widnes but was subsequently banned for three matches for a dangerous tackle in that game.
Wardle said: "I'm glad I've got another two years contracted with the club.
"I felt I owed them a bit for keeping me through all my injuries as they could have easily let me go having had two years out injured. I'd like to repay the club by signing on for another two years.
"It's been massive for me being back playing rugby league, making my debut recently and being back playing with the academy has been amazing.
"Now I want to be able to get into the first team as much as I can and hopefully cement my own place in the team."
