New Zealand international Joseph Manu has new deal with Sydney Roosters that will see him stay at the club until at least the end of 2022.

The 23-year-old made his NRL debut for the Roosters back in 2016, making 71 first-grade appearances so far. He has also earned five caps for the Kiwis.

Roosters coach Trent Robinson said: “Joseph is highly-regarded by his team-mates and all the coaching staff for both the athlete and the person he is.

“Joey‘s work ethic is outstanding and he holds himself accountable on the field, but just as importantly, he is a good man who embodies the values we want in our players, so it’s great news to have him extend with the club.”

Manu added: “The Roosters is home to me, I love this club.

“Trent, the coaches, the players – they’ve all made me a better person and a better player and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team at the Roosters for at least the next three years.”
