He added: “I have been enjoying my rugby and when you are enjoying your rugby that is when you play your best.

“I am just going to enjoy it again next year and hopefully learn more and have a good year next year.”

Tigers’ new head coach Lee Radford is excited by Hall’s potential.

“He has got a great skill set for a big bloke,” he said.

“Physically, he has got what a lot of other young kids don’t and that’s his size.

“Hopefully we can nurture that skill and develop him into a big, ball-playing middle.”
