The Sydney Roosters are pleased to announce that Shaun Kenny-Dowall has today signed an extended agreement for a further two seasons, keeping him at the Club until the end of 2017.

“I’m so proud to represent the Roosters. I’ve grown up here and this is my home,” said Kenny-Dowall.

“We have a fantastic team here on and off the field, especially our coach Trent Robinson who has helped develop my game. There’s a great culture at the Roosters and I’m so happy that I’ll continue to play my role at the Club for a further two years,” he added.

Roosters Chief Operating Officer Football, Brian Canavan, was also pleased to have Kenny-Dowall locked in to the Club’s long-term plans.

“Shaun came to the Roosters as part of our pathway program as a 16 year-old and has developed into not only a wonderful player and Clubman, but also a wonderful ambassador for both the Roosters and the NRL,” said Canavan.

Roosters Head Coach, Trent Robinson, added: “Shaun is a terrific player on the field and just as importantly a terrific man away from the game. A true Clubman, Shaun’s growth over the years has seen him develop into a leader for our young crop to follow and its great news that he will continue to play his role at the Roosters for a further two years.”

27 year-old Kenny-Dowall is currently contesting his ninth season of first grade. He made his NRL debut with the Tricolours in the opening round of the 2007 season and has played 185 games with the Foundation Club to date.

Currently third on the Roosters try-scoring tally (100), behind Bill Mullins (104) and Anthony Minichiello (139), Kenny-Dowall has also represented New Zealand on 14 occasions to date.
