Top scoring forward Robert Dowd has penned a new two-year deal with the Steelers just hours before heading to join his GB teammates at the National sides training camp in Coventry.

Steelers confirm that fellow Britsih players Ben O’Connor, Jackson and Brandon Whistle, Jordan Griffin and Cole Shudra remain under contract.
On signing his new deal Robert Dowd confirmed “I’m thrilled to be back for another two years and also to have this all agreed before joining up with GB
“I’ve met and spoken with Aaron a few times and I’m looking forward to working with him in the years ahead.
“This club always bounces back from lean times and I’m already excited for what we have ahead of us”
