The St George Illawarra Dragons have confirmed the re-signing of exciting playmaker Jayden Sullivan for a further three seasons, until at least the end of the 2025 season.
The Wests Illawarra junior has played six NRL games to date; previous injuries preventing the captain of the Illawarra Steelers' famed 2019 SG Ball premiership-winning team from featuring further in first grade.
News of Sullivan's recommitment follows fellow local juniors Mat and Max Feagai re-signing with the Dragons earlier this month.
"To be able to stay home and continue my career in front of my friends and family, I couldn't be any happier. The club means a lot to me," Sullivan said.
"I'm excited to bring some joy to the Red V. I feel like we're building something special here and I can't wait to see what the future brings."
Dragons general manager of football Ben Haran said Sullivan's retention was a key factor in the club's list management and succession planning going forward.
"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.
"We look forward to seeing him grow as a player over the coming years. He is a great young person to have around the club and he is another important part in the future of the Dragons."
