The St George Illawarra Dragons are excited to announce the re-signing of captain Ben Hunt for an additional two seasons.
Hunt, who was already under contract for 2023, will now remain at the Dragons until at least the end of the 2025 NRL Telstra Premiership season.
The two-time Dragons Medal winner's extension comes on the eve of his departure to the United Kingdom ahead of Australia's Rugby League World Cup campaign.
"It's a pleasing day for my family and I," Hunt said. "I am very happy we were able to come to an agreement as I always wanted to stay with the Dragons.
"I am excited by the direction the club is headed and I'm very much looking forward to playing my part in the Dragons' journey in the coming years."
The Queensland Origin veteran is also due to join the NRL's illustrious 300-game club next season.
"Ben and his family are an integral part of the Dragons and to have him extend for a further two years demonstrates his commitment and desire to bring success to the club over the coming seasons," Dragons general manager of football Ben Haran said.
"Ben's on-field performances speak for themselves, while his leadership off the field and around the club will be crucial in the ongoing development of our NRL squad.
"Ben's re-signing is one that all Red V members, partners and fans should be extremely excited about."
Additional signings as well as the club's 2023 train and triallists will be announced in the coming weeks, ahead of mid-November's pre-season commencement.
