His past exploits were well documented and he has tried to make amends both on and off the field and in relation to form, he has been rewarded with a new contract.
Blake Ferguson’s new 2-year deal with the Roosters came as a result of his hard work, work ethic and desire to succeed in his NRL return this year.
To date, he has scored six tries in eleven games and the centre is pleased to re-sign with the club.
â€œIâ€™m very proud to have re-signed with the Roosters. The Club has looked after me and I really feel like Iâ€™ve found a home here,â€ said Ferguson.
â€œThereâ€™s a strong culture here at the Club and Iâ€™m excited to be able to continue my football career with the Roosters,â€ he added.
His hard work has not gone unnoticed by the club, with COO Brian Canavan praising his hard work and his return to the game in all capacities.
â€œBlake has been very happy since he joined our Club and has openly indicated that he was keen to extend his stay,” said Canavan.
â€œSince he joined us in an off-field capacity mid-way through last year, Blake has worked hard to return to the NRL and is someone who not only buys into the culture at the Club, but drives it,â€ he added.
Transitioning into the side was never going to be an easy task but Roosters coach Trent Robinson praised Ferguson for his seamless efforts.
â€œThereâ€™s no denying that Blake is a terrific athlete, but more importantly, heâ€™s worked hard to gain the trust and respect of the coaching staff and his teammates via his attitude to training and his commitment to being a positive contributor off the field as well,â€ said Robinson.
â€œI have no doubt that Blake will continue to work hard and be a keen contributor at our Club over the next few years,â€ he added.
