“Luke is a leader and a student of the game who brings energy to everything he does. He’s also a good person, so it’s great news that he will continue to play his important role here at the Roosters in the coming years,” Robinson said.

The 28-year-old has scored 33 tries in 148 NRL games for the Rabbitohs and Roosters since his debut in 2013.
