The St George Illawarra Dragons have today announced that winger Jason Nightingale has today agreed to a four-year contract extension that will see him remain at the club at least until the end of 2015.

Nightingale, 24, played an instrumental role for the Dragons on the field throughout last season, including crossing the line twice in the NRL Grand Final to help the club win an historic 16th Premiership.

The winger was also a key-member for the New Zealand international team that won the 2010 Four Nations tournament.

“I’ve signed a four year deal which I’m pretty happy about,” said Nightingale.

“I was pretty set in my thinking from the beginning that I wanted to stay at the club and they indicated that they were very keen to keep me as well.

“I’m very proud of having grown-up in the St George area and spending the majority of my life here around Dragons fans.

“I mustn’t rest on the laurels of last year’s achievements but instead go into the season with as much confidence as last year.”

The former Renown United junior made his first grade debut for the Dragons in Round 8 of the 2007 season against the Penrith Panthers and has since played 81 NRL games.
