Sydney Roosters have handed experienced forward Mitch Aubusson a new one-year contract.

The 31-year-old has played 287 games for the Roosters since making his NRL debut in 2007, scoring 62 tries.

Aubusson – who has played twice for New South Wales Country – will remain at the tri-colours until at least the end of 2020.

Roosters coach Trent Robinson said: “Mitch embodies what it means to be a Rooster.

“A man who leads by example both on and off the field, Mitch is a terrific mentor for both the current players in our squad and for those coming through the grades, so it’s really pleasing that his experience will continue to benefit our club.”

Aubusson added: “My heart is with the Sydney Roosters. I’m a Rooster through and through, and everyone who’s a part of this club means the world to me.

“There’s a strong bond among the group here, and I’m really proud to know that I’ll have the honour of wearing the Roosters jersey for another year.”
