Former Leigh half-back Drew Hutchison has signed a one-year contract extension with Sydney Roosters.

The 25-year-old scored 13 tries in 35 appearances for Leigh in 2018 before joining the Roosters, where he has since played nine games.

Hutchison combines his training commitments with the Roosters with a study for a Bachelor of Primary Education.

Roosters recruitment manager Daniel Anderson said: β€œDrew’s got a lovely left footed kicking game on him, and has added some terrific depth to our squad.

β€œIt’s been great to watch his development over the last few years and we all look forward to that continuing in 2021.”
