Sydney Roosters have confirmed that Boyd Cordner has agreed five-year contract extension with the club.

The deal will keep him at the NRL outfit until at least the end of the 2023 season.

And Cordner admitted that he is thrilled to stay with the Tricolours.

The Australia star said: “There are no words for how proud I am to be a Rooster, I just love the club.

“I’ve been with the Roosters since I was 16 and the club has played a massive role in my development both as a footballer, and as a man.

“From the top down, there’s a great group of people at the Roosters. We’re a family and this is home, so I’m stoked to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team here.”

And Roosters head coach Trent Robinson is delighted that the 25-year-old has decided to stay, despite offers from rival clubs.

He said: “Boyd is our captain, and he is highly-respected for not only his strong work ethic and tireless work rate on the field, but just as importantly, for the man he is away from the field.

“It’s great news for the Roosters that Boyd’s experience and leadership will continue to benefit the team around him in the coming years.”
