The Sydney Roosters have announced that captain Boyd Cordner has agreed to terms on a five-year extension, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2023.

“There are no words for how proud I am to be a Rooster, I just love the Club,” said Cordner.

“I’ve been with the Roosters since I was 16 and the Club has played a massive role in my development both as a footballer and as a man.

“From the top down, there’s a great group of people at the Roosters. We’re a family and this is home, so I’m stoked to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team here,” he added.

“Boyd joined the Roosters as part of our pathway program, and has developed into a leader of not only this Club, but also his State,” said Roosters recruitment manager Adam Hartigan.

“We see Boyd as a Rooster for life. From the outset, Boyd said that his heart was with the Roosters and that this is where he wanted to continue his career, so it’s a massive boost for the Club to have agreed to terms with Boyd for a further five years,” he added.

Roosters head coach Trent Robinson was pleased that Cordner’s leadership would continue to benefit the team.

“Boyd is our captain, and he is highly-respected for not only his strong work ethic and tireless work rate on the field, but just as importantly, for the man he is away from the field,” said Robinson.

  1. Gotta wonder how much he is on, only a month ago they signed up an overrated 30 game rookie to 1 million a season and Cordner, the best 2nd rower in the game is the NSW captain and Aus captain in waiting

    • What a heap of crap Prisoner. Do you think any team in the comp would pay 1mil for a rookie. You need to climb up the prison cell wall and hang onto the bars on the window then take a big breath of fresh air. This will help the remaining brain cells rejuvenate.
