Hull KR have already started planning for what lies beyond next season.

The Robins have acted to tie down Ryan Hall, George King, Rowan Milnes and Matty Storton to long-term deals, despite having a year remaining on their original contracts.

However, Rovers still have plenty of decisions to make going into the 2022 campaign regarding contracts.

Here’s a look at the 16 players who will be entering the final year of their contracts at Craven Park.

Kane Linnett

The Australian won the club’s player of the year award for the second season running earlier this month, underlining his value and importance to Tony Smith’s side.

Linnett extended his stay at Craven Park by another season earlier this summer and he’ll undoubtedly have a big say on Rovers’ fortunes in 2022.

Elliot Minchella

Minchella’s 2021 didn’t exactly go to plan as he was ruled out for the campaign with an ACL injury after just two games.

Wrapping up his future is bound to be one of the club’s priorities going into next season, though, as the forward works his way back to full fitness.

Anesu Mudoti

Mudoti is still waiting to make his Rovers debut having spent the season on loan at League 1 Doncaster.

He’ll be keen to kick on next season at Craven Park and catch the eye of Tony Smith in the hope of securing his future.

Brad Takairangi

The Cook Islands international will be hoping for a better second season in east Hull after failing to find his best form this time around.

His performances will likely dictate whether KR move to keep him around.

Ben Crooks

Crooks signed a new one-year deal in September, ensuring he will remain at Craven Park until the end of 2022.

He’s highly thought of and he’ll be motivated once more next year.

Charlie Cavanaugh

After making the step up to the first team squad at the start of the year, the hooker will be looking to impress in 2022.

Jimmy Keinhorst

Keinhorst worked his way back in from the cold this year and managed to earn himself a new deal to stick around at KR. He’ll be one the club will be thinking long and hard about next season.

Tom Whur

Fresh from a spell on loan with Rochdale Hornets, the young prop will aim to continue his development next season.

Shaun Kenny-Dowall

Alongside Linnett, the skipper signed a contract extension in June, keeping him at the Robins until the end of next season.

Kenny-Dowall was one of the club’s top performers this year and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him penning another deal, should he carry that form over into 2022.

Will Maher

Maher made 17 appearances this season for the Red and Whites and as the 25-year-old approaches his peak years as a player, the club will be watching his progress closely.

Dean Hadley

The versatile forward has underlined his value time and again during his spell at Craven Park and his deal will no doubt feature highly on the club’s list of priorities.

Albert Vete

At times it felt as though he was unstoppable when he received the ball close to the line, but Vete probably didn’t produce his best stuff enough last season.

It means he’s under a little bit of pressure to hit the ground running next year.

Korbin Sims

Sims is another that didn’t failed to reach top form in Rovers colours last season and much will depend on how he starts the season.

Matt Parcell

The hooker has been with the club since June 2019 and he shared the role well with Jez Litten this season.

He bagged seven tries in 21 appearances and he’ll be another who the club will be keen to keep, no doubt.

Will Tate

Tate has shown plenty of promise during his limited time on the field and Smith will be hoping to see him make more strides forward next time around.

Sam Wood

Wood was signed from Huddersfield Giants on a one-year deal and he hasn't arrived at Craven Park yet. KR will be keen to see how he gets on in east Hull before taking a look at his contract.
