Prop forward Agnatius Paasi has signed a new deal keeping him with St Helens until the end of the 2025 season. 

The 30-year-old had initially extended his stay at the club into the 2023 season, but has signed for a further two seasons. 

Having played for the New Zealand Warriors and Gold Coast Titans in the NRL, Paasi made the Super League switch ahead of the 2021 season. He has made 50 appearances for the club.

Agnatius Paasi: I am certainly happy where I am

He said: “I am really enjoying my time here, especially my family and my kids who are all really enjoying where they are based at school.

“The last few years were special, winning the Challenge Cup and the Grand Final and then to win another Super League title, I am certainly happy where I am and I’m happy for this town and I just cant wait for next year.”

Newly appointed head coach Paul Wellens commented: “For Iggy to decide that he wants to stay here at the club for even longer just shows how well he’s fitted in here and settled down.

“He’s a massive player for us, he’s one of the most destructive ball carriers in the competition, he has a great offload game and brings a physicality to the team with how he goes about his defensive work”

“It’ll be great to see him continue to help us push for more trophies.”
