St George Illawarra Dragons have given new deals to Zac Lomax and Tristan Sailor.

Centre or full-back Lomax, 20, has played 18 games for the Dragons since making his professional debut in 2018. He has signed a deal with the Dragons until the end of 2025.

Utility-back Sailor, 21, made his NRL debut for the Dragons earlier this year and has made three first-grade appearances to date. He has penned a one-year contract with the club.

Dragons director of rugby league pathways and list management, Ian Millward, said: “There was a lot of speculation over Zac with numerous clubs in for him and we respected the process he and his management went through.

“One thing that hit home over the past couple of weeks was that he wanted to be a Dragon and wanted to stay at the Dragons.

“We’re extremely excited about Tristan re-signing for a further 12 months following his advancement last year. It was exciting to see his physical and mental development on and off the field.

“The coaching staff have a very high opinion of Tristan as does everyone else in the organisation. He’s heading in the right direction, and with the experiences of last year we’re expecting him to be a vital member of our squad in 2020.”
