The St George Illawarra Dragons confirmed on Thursday that rising young-gun Adam Quinlan has agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension that will see him remain at the Club until at least the end of 2015.

Quinlan, a local south coast junior from the Culburra Dolphins, made his first-grade debut for the Dragons at fullback against the Gold Coast Titans in round nine this season and has made four NRL appearances to date.

The versatile 20-year-old is a graduate of the Dragons National Youth Competition and has played with the Illawarra Cutters for much of this season before moving in to the five-eighth role in the NRL team in recent weeks.

“I am really happy to be staying at the Dragons at least for the next two seasons,” said Quinlan.

“I really like the Club and the area and I am really appreciative of the opportunities given to me by the Club.

“Playing first grade was a dream come true and I will just continue to work hard and make the most of every opportunity that is presented to me.”

Dragons CEO Peter Doust is pleased that Quinlan has chosen to remain at the Dragons despite strong interest from rival Clubs.
