Leigh Centurions have announced that winger, Blake Ferguson has extended his contract until the end of the 2024 season.
Ferguson joined Leigh earlier in the season and has scored 11 tries in only nine appearances.
The Aussie has an impressive cv with over 200 NRL appearances as well nine appearances for New South Wales and seven for Australia on the international stage.
Leigh’s head of Rugby Chris Chester said: “This is a huge signing for Leigh Centurions. When you look at the quality of overseas players the club has had over the years, Blake must rank as one of the best signings the club has ever made.
“He is a top-class NRL, State of Origin and International player at the highest level.
“For him to re-sign at Leigh Centurions shows the strides the club has made in the last 12 months.”
Blake Ferguson said: “I am very excited to be staying at the club. It was a long negotiation process, but I am more than happy to have got it done.
“The group is very tight here at Leigh and we’ve obviously got a lot of talented players within as we try and get into Super League. I am looking forward to hopefully playing on that stage next season.
“As of now, I want to continue working on my combinations with the boys, getting a full pre-season under my belt over here and helping this club progress in the right direction.”
