“I’ve been lucky enough to extend at the Sea Eagles,” said Cherry-Evans. 

“I had this year and next year to run on the contract. But, it worked in both favours. Myself and the club thought it was best to put everything to bed and I’m going to be lucky enough to be playing here for the rest of my career which is great.”

Club chairman Scott Penn added: “We have always wanted Daly to be a one club player.

“We are delighted to extend his contract with the Sea Eagles till the end of 2025.

“He is our club captain, an inspirational leader and this contract extension will take him well past 300 games for the Sea Eagles.”
