Meanwhile, Konrad Hurrell and King Vuniyayawa have both turned down the offer of new contracts with the club.

Centre Hurrell has been linked with a move to reigning Super League champions St Helens while prop Vuniyayawa has been linked with Salford Red Devils.

“I am pleased for Rhyse that he has agreed a new deal. I know he has felt at home here at the Rhinos and is an integral part of our squad,” head coach Richard Agar added.

“It is disappointing to see Konrad and King leave the club but that is the nature of a salary-cap sport.

“They have been integral members of our squad this season and, in Konrad’s case, for a number of years.”
