Hull FC have announced that prop forward Chris Satae has signed a new two-year contract extension with the club.
The Tongan-born prop has extended his stay at the KCOM Stadium until at least the end of the 2023 season.
Satae, 28, joined the club mid-way through the 2019 and has been ever-present for head coach Brett Hodgson in 2021.
He said: “It was a very easy decision for me to stay here. The club welcomed me and my family with open arms from the moment we got here, and it has remained that way ever since.
“I’ve loved my time here so far. The footy side of things for me on the field has been pretty positive too – I’m really enjoying my game at the moment and being here for another two years gives me a great opportunity to build and push on to the next level.
“Moving to the other side of the world can be daunting for a lot of people, but me and my family love it here – it’s a great city with great people, and you can see that from when the fans are in the stadium.”
Satae added, “We’ve got a great group of players and staff here; so staying was a no-brainer for me.
“I’m looking forward to where we can go over the next couple of years. We know the direction we want to go in terms of reaching finals, but we’re building those small steps along the way right now.”
