St Helens have re-signed forward Dan Norman to a new one-year contract for the 2023 Super League campaign.

Norman, 24, joined the Totally Wicked Stadium side ahead of the 2021 season on a two-year deal.

The Warrington-born prop made his professional debut with Widnes in 2018, having come through the club’s academy. He joined London Broncos in 2020 before making the switch to the Super League champions.

He has also spent time on loan with Salford.

Norman said: “I am made up to be staying. It’s such a good club and it is where I want to be. All the lads, the staff and the fans are great and I am looking forward to the future.

“I have enjoyed getting some more game time this season and luckily, I have been in the right place at the right time to get over for a few tries!

“This is the place for me to be for my development and I am learning a lot from the experienced pack members.”

Head coach Kristian Woolf added: “This is a great reward for the effort Dan has put in with us. We identified him as a big athletic body and he came to us quite raw, but he has developed really well over the last year.

“He has a great work ethic and is a great person. Everyone has seen his improvement and has had a big impact. The game against Leeds Rhinos was a good example of that. This season he is holding his hand up and has really put himself in the picture.”
