New Zealand Warriors have re-signed hooker Freddy Lussick until the end of the 2024 NRL season.
The 21-year-old has signed a new two-year deal with the club after originally joining the side in early May for the 2022 campaign.
Lussick, youngest brother to Darcy and Joey, made his NRL debut in 2020 for the Sydney Roosters against the Wests Tigers in Round 15.
He made the switch to St George Illawarra Dragons on a short-term loan in 2021. To date, he has made 14 appearances in the NRL, crossing for one try. In 2022, he has made three appearances for New Zealand Warriors.
“Freddy has settled in brilliantly since joining us,” said Warriors general manager football Craig Hodges.
“While he’s a great fit for our club as deputy to Wayde Egan, he has also really impressed us with what he has provided off the field.”
