The veteran National Rugby League fullback Anthony Minichiello will remain with the Sydney Roosters next year after signing a one-year contract extension with the club.

The 29-year-old, whose career has been hampered by injury, will enter his 11th season with the club after making a successful comeback from his latest injury.

The former Test and New South Wales fullback returned from an ankle injury last month and has filled in at five-eighth in place of the injured Braith Anasta.
