The Sydney Roosters are thrilled to announce that Kiwi international Joseph Manu has signed a two-year extension, keeping him with the Club until at least the end of 2022.
23-year-old Manu, who made his NRL debut with the Tricolours in 2016, was ecstatic to re-commit to the Club.
“The Roosters is home to me, I love this Club,” said Manu.
“Trent, the coaches, the players, they’ve all made me a better person and a better player and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know that I’ll continue to be part of the team at the Roosters for at least the next three years,” he added.
Roosters Head Coach Trent Robinson was pleased to have Manu locked in to the Club’s long-term plans.
“Joseph is highly-regarded by his teammates and all the coaching staff for both the athlete and the person he is,” said Robinson.
“Joey‘s work ethic is outstanding and he holds himself accountable on the field, but just as importantly, he is a good man who embodies the values we want in our players, so it’s great news to have him extend with the Club,” he added.
Manu has played 70 NRL games to date and was a member of the Roosters’ 2018 and 2019 NRL Telstra Premiership-winning sides.
Together with NRL teammates Victor Radley, Nat Butcher, Sitili Tupouniua and Poasa Faamausili, Manu was a member of the Roosters’ 2016 National Youth Competition Premiership-winning side. Manu was also a member of the Roosters’ 2014 SG Ball title-winning side alongside Latrell Mitchell and Faamausili.
In the representative arena, Manu, who is currently in camp with New Zealand, made his international debut in 2018 and has played six Tests to date.
The Roosters are also pleased to announce that Manu’s younger brother, 17-year-old Kani Manu will join the Club’s SG Ball squad.
