He may have only played in six NRL games for the St George Illawarra Dragons but the club knows that Jayden Sullivan is something special.
He would have played more games had it not been for injury but Sullivan is ecstatic to stay at the club he loves.
“To be able to stay home and continue my career in front of my friends and family, I couldn’t be any happier,” Sullivan said.
“The club means a lot to me.”
Sullivan believes the Dragons are building nicely for the 2022 season and beyond and is excited to be involved in that future.
“I’m excited to bring some joy to the Red V,” Sullivan continued.
“I feel like we’re building something special here and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
With the Dragons priding themselves on the retention of local talent, Dragons General Manager of Football Ben Haran knows keeping Sullivan was a must.
“Jayden’s continued commitment to the Dragons beyond the upcoming 2022 season is something everyone connected to the club should be extremely pleased and proud of,” Haran said.
“Jayden is a proven example of our pathways providing opportunities for players to progress through to the NRL level.”
Haran looks forward to watching the growing development of Sullivan as he matures and plays more footy.
“We look forward to seeing him grow as a player over the coming years,” Haran continued.
“He is a great young person to have around the club and he is another important part in the future of the Dragons.”
