Dual-premiership winner Joseph Manu has signed an extension with the Roosters that will see him remain at the club until the end of the 2022 season.
The 23-year-old signed a two-year extension on Tuesday, and said he couldn’t picture himself anywhere else.
“The Roosters is home to me, I love this Club,” Manu told the club’s website.
“Trent, the coaches, the players, they’ve all made me a better person and a better player and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team at the Roosters for at least the next three years.”
Coach Trent Robinson was thrilled to have Manu re-sign, and can’t wait to have him at his disposal for another three years.
“Joseph is highly-regarded by his teammates and all the coaching staff for both the athlete and the person he is,” Robinson said.
“Joey‘s work ethic is outstanding and he holds himself accountable on the field, but just as importantly, he is a good man who embodies the values we want in our players, so it’s great news to have him extend with the Club.”
Manu has played 70 games for the club, and will be joined in Sydney by his younger brother Kani this year, with the 17-year-old joining the Roosters’ SG Ball squad.
