Wests Tigers winger David Nofoaluma will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2017 season after signing a new three-year deal.
Nofoaluma has scored 11 tries in 19 NRL games since making his debut in Round 10 last season, including a high-flying effort against Manly that took out the 2013 Dally M Try of the Year award.
"The club has been great to me over the years and I'm really enjoying my football," Nofoaluma said. "Being a local junior, I've made some great friends coming through the grades at Wests Tigers and playing alongside those guys is something I cherish.
"I've always supported the Wests Tigers, it's a great feeling to be now playing NRL for the Club and I'm thankful for the opportunity I have been given."
Very happy to stay on with the @Wests_Tigers for another 3 years. Thanks everyone for your kind words :)— David Nofoaluma (@DNofoaluma) April 11, 2014
Wests Tigers CEO Grant Mayer said the club was focused on securing the services of the rest of the club's key off-contract local juniors.
"This is a significant step forward for the club in completing the retention of our local juniors," Mayer said. "David has been dynamic since his debut against the Rabbitohs last year and has quickly become a crowd favourite.
"To retain him with so much interest from other clubs is a real coup and a testament to the culture that we are building at Wests Tigers."
