St Helens have tied down stand-off Jonny Lomax to the end of 2024 after agreeing a two-year contract extension with the 30-year-old England international.
Lomax, whose current deal was due to run out at the end of 2022, has been with his home-town club since the age of 11 and in first-team rugby has scored 111 tries and 652 points from 242 appearances.
He played in his fourth Grand Final for the club in November and joins England team-mate Alex Walmsley in pledging his future to Saints.
St Helens chairman Eamonn McManus said: “Jonny has been one of the star players at St Helens and in Super League for a dozen seasons now but I believe that his best is still yet to come.
“It’s therefore fantastic news for all concerned that he’s extended his contract and committed to his home-town club and to the Super League competition until the end of 2024.”
Lomax played for England in the 2017 World Cup final and is in coach Shaun Wane’s elite training squad ahead of this year’s tournament.
Lomax said: “I have been at the club for a long time now and to sign that two-year extension to my existing deal is great.
“I’ve had my ups and downs whilst I have been here but now it is about me giving back as much as I can. I want to show the loyalty the club has shown me as well as the support the fans have given me over the years.
“It’s a dream come true to be at the club for so long. I signed for the scholarship back when I was 11 years old and this contract will take me up to nearly 25 years affiliation with the club.
“That is something I would have never have dreamed of, especially after the back-to-back ACL injuries which was my third overall so to now get to where I am today and potentially finish my career here is fantastic.”
