“I am over the moon to do another year here at such a great club,” he said.

“To be competing for honours every year is a privilege and to still be around the team and be amongst it all is great.

“To be a boy from London, who didn’t really know rugby league until I was 15 and to now surpass 400 Super League games, is amazing for me personally and these milestones are nice, but they just show you are getting older!

“All my family and kids are now here in St Helens. I didn’t expect to still be playing here 12 years on. It’s an honour and hopefully we can win some more trophies next year.”

Departing head coach Kristian Woolf added: “Louie is a great re-signing for the club and it was simply a no brainer to give him another year.

“He has earned his contract through the way he has been playing. He is always fit and the way he looks after his body allows him to still perform at the age he is.

“Louie is a real positive influence on the group and his character is infectious. He has a terrific ability to enjoy playing as well as training and make it enjoyable for others too. His experience is also great for the group.”
