Seen as the man to guide the Roosters to potential continued success, the Sydney Roosters have given coach Trent Robinson a new contract.
The new deal for the Roosters coach will run until the end of the 2019 season, with Robinson drawing strong praise from Roosters boss Nick Politis.
â€œWe are fortunate to have one of the gameâ€™s most astute coaches at the helm of our proud Club,â€ said Sydney Roosters Chairman, Mr Nick Politis AM.
â€œTrent is a man of high integrity whose unwavering pride and passion for the Sydney Roosters and the area we represent has cultivated a strong culture at our Club.
â€œHis strong leadership and resilience, especially at a time when our on-field performances have not been up to his or the Clubâ€™s high standards, also says a lot about the type of coach that he is.
â€œBut just as significantly, Trent has played a vital role in the development of all the players within our system, and itâ€™s wonderful to know that he will continue to lead the Roosters for at least the next three years,â€ added Mr Politis AM.
Robinson himself is pleased with the move to re-sign, at a club that he knows well and has come to enjoy.
â€œThe Sydney Roosters have been a big part of my football life, and itâ€™s a privilege to hold this position,â€ said Robinson.
â€œThatâ€™s largely due to everyone involved with the Club â€“ from our Chairman and Board of Directors, to all the players, staff, sponsors and members. Thereâ€™s a committed team here and Iâ€™m proud to continue my role with the Club,â€ he added.
