The Sydney Roosters have confirmed the re-signing of Jake Friend for a further two seasons.
The Roosters captain will remain with the tri-colours until the end of the 2020 season.
"The Sydney Roosters have played a huge role in my life, and I’m very proud to represent the Club," Friend told the club's website.
"There’s a special group of people at the Roosters both on and off the field, and its exciting to know that I’ll continue to play my role here for a further two years."
The Roosters will now switch their attention to re-signing Friend's co-captian Boyd Cordner, who is off-contract at the end of the 2018 season.
