St George Illawarra have confirmed the extension of five-eighth Talatau Amone for a further season.

Amone, already contracted for the Dragons' 2023 campaign, will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2024 NRL Telstra Premiership season.

The local Western Suburbs Red Devils junior has played 31 NRL games to date, including all 20 games so far throughout the current season.

The 20-year-old also made his Test debut for Tonga in June, with further caps firmly in sight ahead of the upcoming Rugby League World Cup.

"I am very proud to remain at the Dragons. It's my home club and my family and I are very grateful for the opportunity," Amone said.

"To see that the club believes in me to extend my time at the club definitely fills me with a lot of faith. I'm looking forward to repaying the Dragons back with good, consistent footy."

Dragons general manager of football Ben Haran said Amone's re-signing was a great outcome for all involved.

"While Talatau has demonstrated himself as a competent NRL player over the past 18 months, there is significant scope for further improvement over the coming two seasons," Haran said.

"Red V members, partners and fans, like everyone at the club, should be very excited to see Talatau continue his development in such a vital position at the Dragons."

Amone's re-signing follows the likes of the Blake Lawrie, Jack Bird, Jayden Sullivan, Tyrell Sloan, Michael Molo, Jaiyden Hunt and Max and Mat Feagai to re-sign with the Dragons in the past 12 months.
