Sydney Roosters have confirmed that Kiwi prop Jared Warea-Hargreaves has agreed a new deal which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2017 season.
The 26-year-old is delighted to be staying at a club which he loves so much.
“I’m fortunate I get to live my dream every day. I couldn’t see myself playing anywhere else – I love the Roosters and am so proud to represent the club,” he said.
“There’s a strong culture at the Roosters and we’re a tight bunch. We have a fantastic team on and off the field and I’m so happy that I’ll continue to be a part of it.”
Waerea-Hargreaves made his NRL debut in 2009, and has played 118 games in the competition, with 112 of those for the Roosters, whom he joined in 2010.
He has also played for New Zealand on 17 occasions.
Roosters head coach, Trent Robinson, is also pleased that Warea-Hargreaves is staying put.
“Highly respected by the coaching staff and his teammates, Jared is an integral member of our leadership group and someone not only I but everyone at the Roosters values for his contributions both on and off the field, and it’s great to know that he’ll continue to play his role at the club for a further two years,” said Robinson.
