Roosters back-rower signs new long-term deal

Aidan Guerra

In an early Christmas present for Sydney Roosters fans, the club have announced that fan-favourite Aidan Guerra has re-signed with the club for a further three years.

The new deal will see the back-rower remain with the Tricolours for a further three seasons, in a move that Roosters fans will be cheering about given the departure of some forwards this off-season.

After making his debut for the club in 2010 and with 87 first-grade games to his name – all for the Roosters – re-signing with the club was the only option for Guerra.

“Playing for a club like the Roosters is an honour I don’t take lightly,” said Guerra.

“This a great club and I’m really happy that I’ll continue to represent the Roosters and be a part of this team over the next three years.”

2014 was perhaps Guerra’s best ever season, as he represented both QLD in the State of Origin and the Kangaroos in the Four Nations tournament.

For the club, knowing that they are able to keep a player on the rise and performing so well, is a great boost for them.

“Aidan made his NRL debut at the Roosters and has matured into a player chosen to represent his state and country,” said Roosters Recruitment Manager, Peter O’Sullivan.

“Aidan’s coming of age during this year’s Origin Series was a just reward for his dedication and hard work. He certainly brought that experience back to his club football, and we were proud to see him complete the year by making his Australian debut in the Four Nations.

“Committed, strong and talented, Aidan plays an important role within the team and it’s great to have secured his services until the end of 2017.”
