The Sydney Roosters have today announced that Nat Butcher has penned a three-year extension which will keep him with the Club until at least the end of 2027.
Butcher, who was recognised for his off-field educational achievements by being named in the NRL’s 2023 Academic Team of the Year, was thrilled to re-commit to the Club.
“I’ve been part of the Roosters since I was 17 and it’s my home,” said Butcher.
“We’ve got a great crew here and I love that everyone in the building is committed to the same goal, so I’m stoked that I’ll continue to be part of this Club,” he added.
Roosters Head Coach Trent Robinson was pleased to have Butcher locked into the Club’s long-term plans.
“Nat was the captain of our Under 20s side and it’s been terrific to watch him develop as a leader in our NRL squad over the years,” said Robinson.
“He is a man of high integrity on and off the field, and with Nat you know that he will apply himself to everything he does, so it’s great that he will continue to represent the Roosters in the coming years,” he added.
Butcher, 26, has played 126 games for the Roosters – including the 2019 Grand Final – since making his NRL debut in 2016.
He combines his training commitments with study for a Bachelor of Commerce (Data Analytics). Butcher also regularly engages in community work as a Ronald McDonald House Ambassador.
