New Zealand international Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will remain at NRL Premiers Sydney Roosters until the end of 2023 after signing a new deal.

The 30-year-old prop forward, who joined the Roosters in 2010 from Manly Sea Eagles, has put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

Waerea-Hargreaves has played 213 times for the Roosters, scoring 12 tries in the process. He is the reigning New Zealand RL Player of the Year and was also on the shortlist for the RLIF Golden boot – which was won by Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

He told the club website: “It’s an honour and a privilege to wear the Roosters jersey, and this Club is definitely where my heart is.

“From the top down, there’s a special group of people at the Roosters, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team we have here.”

Roosters head coach Trent Robinson added: “In the role he plays on the field and as our Club’s vice-captain, Jared is an integral member of our leadership group.

“Respected for his strong work ethic, and for the good man that he is, Jared has embraced his role as a mentor to the younger forwards we have at the Club, so it’s great news that his experience will continue to benefit the Roosters in the coming years.”
