With all the focus on the big-name recruits that the Sydney Roosters have signed for the 2018 season, other names fell by the wayside somewhat.
With players to re-sign and recommit, the Roosters had their work cut out in retaining their stars but have held onto Luke Keary, who has committed to the club for a further three seasons until the end of 2021.
The 25-year old half was already contracted for the 2018 season and played in every game for the Tricolours in 2017.
In his eyes, the Roosters club is his new home and he is excited to continue playing for the foundation club.
“I’ve found a home here at the Roosters, and each day I come in, I’m learning something new, so I’m really glad to extend my time here,” Keary said.
With Keary a focal point of the Roosters spine alongside new halfback Cooper Cronk, the club are pleased to retain him.
“Luke is a quality person who loves his footy and is always working on his game,” Robinson said.
“As I said a few months ago, barring the nine minutes he spent in the sin bin, Luke didn’t miss a moment of game time for us in 2017, and that’s a testament to how hard he works.”
“On and off the field, Luke has become a big contributor in all aspects of Club life, so its great news for the Roosters to have him on board for a further three years.”
