Cordner signs new deal with Roosters

THE Roosters have re-signed co-captain Boyd Cordner on a five-year deal that will keep him at Bondi until the end of 2023.

Cordner, who made his debut in 2011, has become one of the best backrowers in the competition and become an automatic selection at Test and Origin level.

"It's a place where I've been since I was a kid and honestly I couldn't see myself playing anywhere else," Cordner said on NRL 360 on Monday night.

"I've been blessed with so many memories and opportunities in my time with the Roosters. "I've grown up there. I came down as a boy and grew into a man.

"It's a great club. I love the memories I've had so far and I can't wait to create many more."

Cordner will stick with the Roosters until the end of 2023.
