Warriors prop Addin Fonua-Blake has put an end to all the speculation surrounding his future by penning a contract that will run until the end of the 2026 NRL season.
The Warriors are priced at 30/1 to win the 2022 NRL grand final and having Fonua-Blake on board will boost their chances of climbing the ladder next season and beyond.
Fonua-Blake has been a revelation since arriving from the Manly Sea Eagles last year and is a key part of coach Nathan Brown's plans moving forward.
The forward was under contract for the next two seasons but would have been able to speak to rival clubs from 1st November and one or two would have been sniffing around.
Such a situation developing has now been taken off the table and Fonua-Blake is delighted to have committed his future.
"I love being here and I'm excited about what's ahead of us," Fonua-Blake said after the deal was announced. "My family also loves it here and we can't wait to get over to New Zealand and really experience what the club is all about.
"It just made sense to me to commit for the long-term right now."
Fonua-Blake may have only managed to play 15 games last season but when fit showed how important he is and coach Brown is delighted with the deal.
"Addin fitted in immediately," Brown added. "He has such an influence whenever he's on the field so it's great knowing he's going to be with us for a lot of years to come. He's making a huge difference to our club."
