Two-year extension

The St George Illawarra Dragons announced on Thursday that Matt Cooper has agreed to a two-year contract extension that will see him remain at the club at least until the end of 2013.

“I feel really good to have been able to extend my contract knowing now that I’ll be a Dragon for the rest of my career,” said Cooper,

“Being a one man club has always been a dream of mine, I love the club and the area and know that we will continue to be a strong club under the guidance of Steve Price from next year”.

Dragons CEO Peter Doust is pleased with the re-signing of the former Australia international and the positive role he will continue playing for the club.

“Matt is a local junior valuable member of our senior playing group and I am sure that all Dragons fans will be pleased that we have been able to reach an agreement to see Matt remain with our club,” said Doust.

“Matt has been a significant contributor to our club both on and off the field for a number of years and he will continue to play a valuable leadership role under Steve Price moving forward next season.”
