NRL - Rugby League: Robinson ties up Roosters future

Sydney Roosters see a bright future ahead after handing head coach Trent Robinson a new five-year contract.

The 44-year-old was already under contract until 2023, but has now extended his deal until 2028, with the Roosters 11/2 to win the NRL Grand Final next season.

Robinson began his coaching career as an assistant with both the Newcastle Knights and the Roosters, before taking his first top job at Super League outfit the Catalans Dragons in 2010.

Robinson close to a decade

In 2013 he headed back home to take charge of the Roosters, meaning he is just short of a decade in charge, which he will easily surpass during his extended terms.

During his time with the Roosters, Robinson has led his team to three Grand Final successes, in 2013, 2018 and 2019 - meaning that the Sydney franchise have matched the record mark of four title previously held on their own by Melbourne Storm.

Roosters chairman Nick Politis told the club's official website: "In my view Trent is the game's best thinker. He is a man of high integrity with a genuine love for his players, the history of our club and the area we represent."

Politis hails Robinson impact

"Every player that we have signed since Trent came on board has become a better player and person, and it's wonderful to know that Trent will continue to lead the way well into the future."

Robinson himself added: "This club has been the biggest part of my working life; it is unequivocally my home.

"The Roosters is in my DNA and as a leader my role here is pretty clear. I'm incredibly proud to extend my time with the club."
