St.George Illawarra Dragons front-rower Jeremy Latimore has re-signed with the Dragons for an additional season.

The 31-year old has committed to the club until the end of the 2019 season.

The journeyman has played in almost all of the Dragons’ first grade games in 2018 and has provided valuable influence for the wider squad’s younger forwards.

The Port Macquarie Sharks junior has played 159 NRL games to date, with the Parramatta Eels, New Zealand Warriors, Penrith Panthers and Cronulla Sharks among his previous clubs.

“I’m lucky enough to get another year after what’s been a pretty good season for myself. I’ve been pretty happy with my form,” Latimore told the club website.

“The body has been good for me this year. I’ve been lucky to have only missed one game this season. There’s plenty of teammates vying for my spot so I can’t rest on my laurels.

“Young Blake Lawrie is banging down the door by playing good footy then there’s Hame Sele, Jacob Host and even Luciano Leilua who of late has been one of our form players.

“Youth is the future so I’m happy to have and continue to help with their development.”
