Tonga international Will Hopoate has signed a contract extension that will see him stay with Canterbury Bulldogs until the end of 2021.
The 27-year-old full-back has made 87 appearances for the Bulldogs since 2016, scoring 21 tries. He has also earned nine caps for Tonga.
Bulldogs coach Dean Pay said: “Will has just come off an outstanding season and it is great news for the club that he has committed to us until the end of 2021.
“He is the heart and soul of everything that we are about and his consistency and toughness are there every week.
“He was able to switch from full-back to centre and continue to produce great performances and it was a just reward for him to be named our Player of the Year.
“We look forward to Will being a big part of our future.”
