Minichiello re-signs with Roosters

5:58 am on 12 December 2013

The National Rugby League premiers Sydney Roosters have finally locked in a new one-year contract with their veteran captain Anthony Minichiello.

The deal will keep the 33-year-old fullback Minichiello at the club where he has played all 275 of his first grade games until the end of next season - his 15th in the top grade.

He is behind only former player Luke Ricketson (301) for most games for the club and could conceivably pass him in 2014 if he stays fit. He also holds its record for most tries with 122.
