St Helens forward Chris Flannery has extended his contract at the club until the end of next season.

The 31-year-old Australian joined the Saints from the Sydney Roosters in 2007 and has since made 107 appearances, scoring 35 tries.

"I have spent a great four years at the Saints," Flannery said.

"I'm very happy to be adding another season, particularly as the club will be moving into its own fabulous new stadium then."

Head coach Royce Simmons added: "Chris is a seasoned and proven professional and adds both substance and versatility to the squad.

"It's good news for all that he's committed for a further season."
