Prop Satae signs new Warriors NRL deal

By AAP Newswire

Warriors prop Chris Satae has signed a three-year contract extension with the NRL club.

The 25-year-old becomes the second front-rower to commit his long-term future to the New Zealand-based side this week.

Satae's extension announcement on Friday comes four days after the club confirmed Leeson Ah Mau would be returning from St George Illawarra at season's end, until at least 2021.

Satae has 10 first grade appearances to his credit, predominantly off the interchange bench, including three in his debut campaign last year.

Tongan-born Satae's abrasive efforts had reportedly attracted the attention of the Melbourne Storm, who last month secured the services of Warriors prop Albert Vete in a mid-season deal.
