Dragons young gun Zac Lomax has recommitted his future to the club.
The 18-year old was set to come out of contract at the end of the 2019 season, but is now locked away until at least the end of 2020.
“It’s definitely a good decision I’ve made to extend my stay at the Dragons,” Lomax told dragons.com.au.
“My family and I are very happy to stay at the club. To come through the junior reps to now with the first grade squad, I can’t thank the Dragons enough.
“The goal for me is to earn a spot in the first grade side and hopefully I’ll play a few more before the season is out. It was a dream come true making my NRL debut so I’m looking forward to what’s ahead.”
Lomax made his debut for the Dragons in round 10 this season against the Rabbitohs, but has since been hampered with a hand injury.
Dragons list manager Ian Millward was thrilled to secure the highly-touted youngster’s future at the club.
“Zac is one of the most promising players to come through our ranks in many years,” Millward told dragons.com.au.
“He’s a player we look at building this team around in the long-term because we think he has all the attributes to be an outstanding NRL player.
“We do look at him as a long-term centre and we don’t hide that fact at all. Although this is just an extension to 2020, we look at Zac as if he’ll be a 10-year player for the Dragons and challenge for higher representatives.
