The St George Illawarra Dragons fans will be pleased that they have been able to keep Sione Finau as the talented outside back signs a new contract extension with the club.

The new deal will see Finau promoted to the Dragons top 30 and the Victorian product is beyond thrilled to have his future sorted.

“It was one of the biggest decisions I’ve ever made,” Finau said.

“I just think I’ve built something here along with the boys.

“I’ve fitted in pretty well with the culture that the boys have and just the bond. It feels like I’ve grown up here, like I’ve been here for a long time even though it’s only been a year.

“I’m enjoying it… It’s like home now. I love it here. I love the Dragons.”

Finau, who hails from Victoria, admits that facing incoming Dragons head coach Shane Flanagan for the first time was a bit daunting.

“This year has been the best year that I’ve ever played,” Finau continued.

“I’ve grown up as a player and played my best footy… I had a meeting with Flanno, which was pretty good.

“I was a bit nervous my first time meeting him, but he was pretty straightforward.

“He gave me a bit of insight on what’s going to happen. I took in his points, and it really helped me with my decision.”
