His signature is finally confirmed with Angus Crichton re-signing at the Sydney Roosters for two more seasons.
With his future previously under tense speculation, it puts to bed any talk of a move away from the Roosters.
Though for Crichton, moving away from the Roosters was not something that really crossed his mind.
“I’ve made no secret of the love I have for the Sydney Roosters,” Crichton said.
“This is my home and I’m really excited to have re-committed to the Club for the next two years.”
“I know I have so much more to give and that my best football is in front of me, and I’m looking forward to continuing to play my role for this great Club.”
It was back in 2016 when Crichton made his debut with then side, the South Sydney Rabbitohs, and to date, he has played 141 NRL games with 86 of those at the Roosters.
Retaining Crichton was a key priority for the Roosters.
“Angus is a valued member of the Roosters squad for the role he plays both on and off the field and we’re pleased to have secured his services for a further two years,” said Roosters Head of Recruitment Daniel Anderson.
The Roosters have also added two further players to their roster; utility back Jaxson Paulo and hooker Jake Turpin.
Both players are expected to help shore up the depth for the Roosters side in 2023.
“Jaxson is a skilful outside back whose best football is still ahead of him, and Jake is a specialist hooker who will provide some terrific depth to our squad,” Anderson said.
“We look forward to welcoming Jaxson and Jake when they officially join the Club at the start of pre-season next month.”
