“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.”
