The Sydney Roosters have today announced that Nat Butcher has signed a two-year extension, keeping him with the Club until at least the end of 2022.
22-year-old Butcher, who made his NRL debut with the Roosters in 2016, was thrilled to re-commit to the Club.
“I’ve been with the Roosters since I was 17, and I love this Club. It’s home,” said Butcher.
“I have so much respect for Robbo. He is a great leader and a great teacher, and he along with the coaching staff and senior players we have here help make me better every day. I’m stoked to know that I’ll continue to be part of this team,” he added.

Roosters Head Coach was pleased to have Butcher locked in to the Club’s long-term plans.
“Nat has been in our system for quite a few years, and it’s been great to see his growth over this time as one of the emerging young leaders coming through at the Roosters,” said Robinson.
“With Nat, you know that he will apply himself to everything he does. He is always looking at ways to develop, both on the field and as a person, and we look forward to seeing him continue to grow over the next few years,” added Robinson.
After making his NRL debut in the final round of the 2016 season, Butcher’s season culminated in a man of the match performance in the 2016 National Youth Competition Grand Final where he captained the Roosters side, which also included NRL teammates Joseph Manu, Victor Radley, Sitili Tupouniua and Poasa Faamausili, to victory.
He has played 39 NRL games to date and was a member of the Club’s 2019 NRL Telstra Premiership-winning side. In the international arena, Butcher represented the Junior Kangaroos in the 2019 Test against France.
