Sydney Roosters fans finally have something to cheer about, with star Jared Warea-Hargreaves recommitting to the club until at least the end of 2020.
The club confirmed on Thursday that the 27 year-old, who is currently representing New Zealand at the Four Nations tournament in England, signed a three-year extension with the club.
“Everyone who knows me knows how much the Roosters mean to me,” Waerea-Hargreaves said.

“It’s an honour to wear the Roosters jersey and to represent our area, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team we have here for at least the next four years,” he added
Roosters CEO John Lee recognised Jared’s on-going contribution to the Club both on and off the field.
“Not only is Jared a proud Clubman, but also a favourite among our Members, corporate partners and supporters,” said Lee.
“He is a great ambassador for the Roosters and for rugby league, and to secure his services for a further three years is wonderful news for our Club,” he added.
Roosters Head Coach, Trent Robinson, said he is highly respected by coach staff and his teammates.
“He is a key leader of our forward pack on the field, and as Vice-Captain, an integral member of our leadership group off the field, so it’s great to know that Jared will continue to play his role at the Roosters in the coming years,” Robinson said.
Since making his NRL debut in 2009, Waerea-Hargreaves has played 149 games to date, 143 of those with the Sydney Roosters, whom he joined in 2010 but missed a big chuck on the 2016 season as he battled a knee injury.
