NZ Warriors' reigning Player of the Year Tohu Harris has re-signed with the club for a further three years.
The 29-year-old's contract was due to run out at the end of the current season, but his commitment to the club through 2024 will give his side a much-needed boost before their season-opener against Gold Coast Titans on Saturday.
The back-rower will extend his stay to seven seasons, after joining from Melbourne Storm in 2018.
"Retaining Tohu [Harris] is hugely important for the team and for the club as a whole," Warriors chief executive Cameron George says.
"He's our current Player of the Year and he's a vital cog in our squad, and this is a great boost for our club, having an established squad leader committing to three more years at the Warriors."
Harris is excited to extend his stay at the club and can see the positive direction the side is moving in.
"I love what is happening here the moment," he says. "The staff and the players are gelling, it's been a really enjoyable off-season and now I can't wait for kick off tomorrow.
"We have some exciting kids coming through the system and I see a great future here in the coming years.
"The other leaders and I need to maintain the standards set, so we can become a consistent top team in the NRL."
New head coach Nathan Brown has Harris locked in at lock, after his successful switch from the second row to the middle last year.
