Agnatius Paasi has re-signed for the Warriors on a three-year contract extension.

The front rower agreed to terms on a deal which will see his tenure at Mt Smart Stadium last until at least the end of the 2022 NRL season.

Paasi, who was part of the Warriors’ 2011 NYC Premiership team – and made his debut for the seniors in 2014 – re-joined the Warriors in 2018, following three seasons at the Gold Coast Titans.

Warriors coach Stephen Kearney has been delighted with the impact Paasi has had since returning to the Warriors, both from a playing and leadership perspective.

“Iggy has done a tremendous job for us since coming home,” Warriors head coach Stephen Kearney told the club’s website.

The 27-year-old has certainly made his presence known at the Warriors over the last year and a half.
The Tongan played 23 games for the Warriors last season, as the club re-emerged into the NRL finals for the first time since 2011, playing 14 games so far this year as well.
The Warriors will travel to Suncorp Stadium to take on the Brisbane Broncos on Saturday night.
