Front rower Ben Matulino has given the Warriors' 2015 NRL campaign a huge boost by re-committing to the club on a new two-year contract which will keep him at Mount Smart Stadium until the end of the 2017 season.
Named the club's player of the year in 2012, Matulino said he was delighted he'd be staying in Auckland for at least another two years.
"I'm really pleased to have my future sorted out now before the season starts," he said.
"There was interest from other clubs but this is where I want to be.
"I really like the culture Cappy (head coach Andrew McFadden) is building and feel our future is looking good. That's something I want to be a part of.
"This is also a great group of players to be around, the ones who have been there all the way along like Simon (Mannering), Manu (Vatuvei) and Sam (Rapira) as well as the young players coming through."
