CULBURRA Beach's Adam Quinlan has agreed to extend his stay in England by one year, penning a new deal with the Hull Kingston Rovers to keep him at the club until the end of 2021.
Originally joining the club back in 2017 and being an integral part of the immediate return to Super League, Quinlan has enjoyed a successful tenure with the Robins entering his fifth season with the Red and Whites - which includes winning the 2018 Roger Millward Player of the Year award.
"I'm excited for another year here," Quinlan said to Rovers Media.
"I'm finishing my fourth year, so I'm coming into my fifth - I've really enjoyed it so for.
"I've had a few injuries which haven't been great, so I'm looking forward to hopefully getting out there and repaying the club's faith in me."
During his time abroad, Quinlan has made 55 appearances for the Rovers and scored 28 tries.
"I've enjoyed the style of rugby that we have been playing here," Quinlan said.
"When we play, I feel that it suits my game.
"I'm looking forward to getting back out there, giving my all for the club and hopefully playing well.
"The club and everyone involved was really welcoming when I first came over and they still are.
"If I hadn't enjoyed my time here, then I wouldn't be looking to extend into my fifth year - I think that says a lot about Rovers as a whole."
Prior to his wrist injury (sustained against St Helens on August 30) and returning from lockdown, the Culburra Dolphins junior was in fine form scoring tries against Warrington Wolves and St Helens, with trademark supporting breaks and his dangerous runs.
The fullback has loved each minute being out on the field, with Tony Smith's new, impulsive style of play.
"It was great - with the big break in lockdown we spoke about playing this new style and we had a month training before our first game," he said.
"We started practising it there and we were all really excited to play this new brand of rugby.
"I thought that we were showing some promising signs, but it was unfortunate that this freakish accident cut that short, but the style the boys have still played since has been really good."
