The St George Illawarra Dragons on Friday announced that prop Leeson Ah Mau has agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension that will see him remain at the Club until at least the end of 2018.
Ah Mau, 25, has played 59 first-grade games for the Club since his arrival from the North Queensland Cowboys in 2012 and has played 94 NRL games in total to date.
The representative forward has represented his nation of heritage on eight occasions with his most recent appearance coming in the 18-16 win over Mate Ma’a Tonga in the Pacific Test held earlier this month.
“I am really happy to be able to continue representing the Club for at least another three years,” said Ah Mau.
“It has been great learning under Head Coach Paul McGregor and all the other coaching staff and I am very thankful for the opportunity to remain here.
“I intend to work hard to repay the faith that has been shown in me.
“We have a great squad and a really positive environment here at the Dragons and I am very happy to be able to stay.
Dragons Head of Recruitment and Retention Peter Mulholland was pleased the prop’s decision to remain with the Club.
“We were keen to see Leeson extend his stay and are pleased that we have been able to come to an arrangement that will see him remain at the Dragons at least until the end of 2018,” said Mulholland.
“Leeson has established himself as a quality starting prop in his time at the Club and will be a key part of our squad make-up over the next few years”.
