The Sydney Roosters are thrilled to announce that champion fullback James Tedesco has re-committed to the Club for a further three years, keeping him at the Tricolours until at least the end of 2024.
“The Sydney Roosters is the best Club in the world. We have the best teammates, best staff and best people,” said Tedesco.
“We’ve had a lot of success over the last few years and I’ve played some of my best footy. I can’t wait to make more memories,” he added.
Roosters Head Coach Trent Robinson was also pleased to have Tedesco extend his time with the Club.
“James is an integral member of our team, not just for the important role he plays on the field, but also for the important voice he is off the field as a senior member of our squad,” said Robinson.
“We all love ‘Teddy’. He’s a good person and its great news that he will continue to play his role here at the Roosters in the coming years,” he added.

27-year-old Tedesco has played 158 first grade games to date, 68 of those with the Roosters since joining the Club in 2018.
At the conclusion of the 2020 season, the two-time Premiership winner (2018-2019) became the first player in the history of the award to win the Jack Gibson Medal as Sydney Roosters Player of the Year for the third successive year.
Off the field, Tedesco is an ambassador for Headspace, a foundation which provides mental health services to young Australians aged 12 to 25. He is also a Patron for the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation committed to making life easier for children with cancer.
Tedesco is currently on his off-season break and will resume training with the Club in January 2021.
