In a huge boost, the Sydney Roosters have today announced that one-club man Mitchell Aubusson has signed an extension which will keep him at the Foundation Club until the end of 2020.
“My heart is with the Sydney Roosters. I’m a Rooster through and through, and everyone who’s a part of this Club means the world to me,” said Aubusson.
“There’s a strong bond among the group here, and I’m really proud to know that I’ll have the honour of wearing the Roosters jersey for another year,” he added.
Roosters Head Coach, Trent Robinson, was also pleased to have Aubusson extend with the Club.
“Mitch embodies what it means to be a Rooster,” said Robinson.
“A man who leads by example both on and off the field, Mitch is a terrific mentor for both the current players in our squad and for those coming through the grades, so it’s really pleasing that his experience will continue to benefit our Club,” he added.
31-year-old Aubusson was appointed Sydney Roosters Club Captain in 2017. He is a three-time recipient of the Roosters’ prestigious James Mathews Award for Clubman of the Year (2011, 2015, 2016) and is currently contesting his 13th season of first grade.
He made his NRL debut with the Tricolours in the opening round of the 2007 season and is currently the third most-capped player in the Club’s 111-year history behind only Luke Ricketson (301 games) and Anthony Minichiello (302 games).
