The 21-year-old, who scored a hat-trick in last Friday's 52-0 win over Castleford to take his total to eight tries in eight Super League appearances, is now committed to the club until the end of 2017.

"There is no doubting Tom's obvious talent and he has done tremendously to get to this point, mainly through his work ethic and application, which is second to none," Hull coach Peter Gentle said.

"He has a lot to learn and understand if he is to maximise his potential but we believe he can do that given time and that's why we have offered him a long-term deal."
