Staying put: Manu locks in new deal with Tricolours

The Roosters have locked in Joseph Manu for another two years, re-signing the star centre until at least the end of the 2024 season.

Manu, 25, had been mooted as a possible target for rival clubs and new NRL franchise the Dolphins in recent months but confirmed on Monday he will remain at the Tricolours.

"The Roosters is home to me and I couldn’t see myself playing for another club. From the top-down, I love this club," Manu said in a statement.

"Trent and the coaches and staff we have here help make me a better player and person every day. It's a privilege to wear the Roosters jersey and I’m excited for what the future holds."

Manu joined the Roosters as a teenager in 2014 after playing his junior rugby league in New Zealand.

He celebrated his 100th NRL game at the club earlier this year.

"Joseph has been with club since he was a schoolboy and I’ve loved watching him develop into the hardworking player and game-changer we all enjoy watching today," Roosters coach Trent Robinson said.

"Joey has an incredible work ethic and is confident in the player and man that he is, and it’s great news that his leadership will continue to benefit the Roosters in the coming years."

Manu is expected to join his Roosters teammates for pre-season training in the coming weeks after his 2021 campaign was cut short by the fractured cheekbone he suffered against the Rabbitohs in round 24.
