The St George Illawarra Dragons today announce that New Zealand international Nathan Fien has agreed to a one-year contract extension that will see him remain at the club at least until the end of the 2013 season.
Fien, 31, joined the Dragons in mid-2008 from the Warriors and made his first grade debut for the club in Round 18 against the Manly Sea-Eagles and has since played 30 NRL games for the club.
The Mt Isa junior, along with fellow Kiwi Jason Nightingale captured every available rugby league team honour last season and was delighted to extend his stay at the Dragons.
“I am very happy to have sorted my future out and remain with the Dragons as I have really enjoyed my time at the club and representing it so far,” said Fien.
“I am aware of the history attached to wearing the Red V jersey and am now looking forward to the rest of the season as well as the bright future working under Steve Price.”
Dragons CEO Peter Doust is pleased with the re-signing of Fien and his decision to extend his stay at the club.
“Nathan is a key member of our senior playing group and we are very pleased that he has chosen to extend his career with the club,” said Doust.
“Nathan is a significant contributor to our club both on and off the field and is a great role model for our younger players”.
