Wests Tigers prop Alex Seyfarth has signed a new contract which will see him stay at Concord until at least the end of the 2025 season.
The 24-year-old has played 47 NRL games since his debut at the start of the 2020 season and said he was “looking forward to a strong pre-season and being injury free”.
“This time last year I was still recovering from breast surgery, so it would be good to start straight away,” he said.
TheRabbitohs, meanwhile, have extended top forward Keaon Koloamatangi for two more seasons until the end of 2026.
The25-year-old Tongan international has played 82 NRL games for the Rabbitohs since his first grade debut in 2020.
The Junior Mascot Jets, who made his State of Origin debut for New South Wales in Origin III this year, said he has ambitions of winning a premiership with South Sydney before retiring.
“We had to think about November 1 coming into effect and I wanted to do something with the club before then,” Koloamatangi said.
“There is a great belief here that we can win competitions.
We’ve been very close over the years, so I didn’t want to walk away and throw away all the hard work we’ve put in and the hard work that lies ahead. It’s not in my DNA.
“The Rabbitohs are always at the fore front of my mind and I want to win at least one game here before I retire.
”The Wests Tigers have also re-signed fan favorite Alex Twal until at least the end of the 2027 season, adding another three years to his current contract.
The27-year-old prop made his NRL debut with the Concord club in the 2017 season and has made 124 first division appearances across seven seasons.
The Lebanon international provided one of the highlights of the Wests Tigers’ season, ending a 115-match drought and crossing for his first NRL try in Round 16 against the Storm.
This club means so much to me and I’m just so happy to extend my stay long-term,” Twal said.
“We have so much still to achieve as a club and a team, and so do I as a player. I can’t wait to put 2023 behind us and rip into pre-season training in a few weeks.”
Twal’s signing comes after the club extended star centre Starford To’a until the end of the 2026 season.
To’a, who has been selected in the Tonga squad to tour England for an historic three Test series, has played 39 games in his two seasons at Wests Tigers after joining the club from the Knights in 2022.
Young Titans flyer Tony Francis has committed to the Gold Coast for a further two seasons and will move into the top 30 squad in 2024.
Yet to make his NRL debut, the 20-year-old had a stellar year for the Burleigh Bears in 2023, scoring 21 tries across 22 games, including a hat-trick in the Hostplus Cup grand final.
Warriors centre Brayden Wiliame has announced his retirement after an injury-troubled season with the club.
The 30-year-old former Fiji international had another season to run on his two-year deal but after playing just two games this season, has decided to call time on his 10-year NRL career.
