The Warriors hooker Nathan Friend has signed a one-year extension with the NRL club.

The deal will keep the 33-year-old in Auckland until the end of the 2015 season.

Friend, who debuted for the Warriors in 2012 after moving from the Gold Coast Titans, says he's delighted to remain in New Zealand, where his family have settled.

The workaholic hooker plays his 183rd NRL game on Sunday when the Warriors tackle the table topping Bulldogs in Hamilton.
