St George Illawarra Dragons captain Ben Creagh is proud to have re-signed with the Club ahead of the fixture against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park on Monday.
The local University of Wollongong junior agreed on Wednesday to extend his stay with the Dragons for a further season until at least the 2016 season.
Creagh, 30, has played 253 NRL games to date and is presently ranked third on the list of all-time first-grade appearances behind only Ben Hornby (273) and Norm Provan (256) respectively.
"I'm over the moon to be honest as I have the opportunity to represent the Club for at least another season and I'm looking forward to 2016," said Creagh.
"I was always quietly confident of playing another season as it was always my intention debuting back in 2003 to hopefully be a one-club player.
"The Club's been very loyal to me over a long time now and it's great I guess that I am able to repay that.
"My family have been very supportive as they know how much I love the Dragons and playing rugby league.
"I look over my career at everything that has happened and there have been both ups and downs; at the moment we are going really well but we're only halfway through the season.
"Hopefully the momentum carries throughout the rest of the year."
