New Zealand international Jared Waerea-Hargreaves has signed a new deal that will see him stay at Sydney Roosters until the end of 2023.

The 30-year-old prop has made 215 appearances for the Roosters since making his debut for the club in 2010. He has also earned 29 caps for the Kiwis.

Waerea-Hargreaves said: “It’s an honour and a privilege to wear the Roosters jersey, and this club is definitely where my heart is.

“From the top down, there’s a special group of people at the Roosters, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team we have here.”

Roosters coach Trent Robinson added: “In the role he plays on the field and as our club’s vice-captain, Jared is an integral member of our leadership group.

“Respected for his strong work ethic, and for the good man that he is, Jared has embraced his role as a mentor to the younger forwards we have at the club, so it’s great news that his experience will continue to benefit the Roosters in the coming years.”
