Catalans Dragons have confirmed that Zeb Taia has signed a new three-year deal at the club.
The powerful backrower should now stay in Perpignan until the end of the 2017 season.
“My family and I love the life here, we are happy in France,” he said.
“I’m happy with the club and the staff.
“Hopefully we can win a trophy in the next couple of years.
“We have a good young team and I believe in the young players at the club, especially the ones coming through the U19 system.”
The former Kiwi international has scored 22 tries in 52 Super League appearances for the Catalans, after joining them in 2013.
He was an ever-persent in the side in 2014, playing 30 games and scoring 12 tries.
“Zeb has been voted Player of the Year by the staff last year,” Dragons CEO Christophe Jouffret said.
“He became a key player in the squad.
“He played the whole 30 games last season, and always at his best level.
“He is a great player with great qualities, both on and off the field.
“His contract was running until the end of 2015 season but we felt it was important to secure the Cook-Island captain signature for the long term.”
