Dragons extend and upgrade Tyrell Sloan

St George Illawarra Dragons have announced rising star Tyrone Sloan has been extended and upgraded heading into the 2022 season.

Sloan was originally on a development contract for this year and has now been upgraded into their NRL top 30 and will stay at the club until the end of the 2024 season.

After making the finals just twice in the last 10 seasons, the Dragons faithful have plenty to look forward to now that the club has locked up several players from the 2019 SG Ball Grand Final winning side.

Twins Matthew and Max Feagai, Jayden Sullivan, Junior Amone and now Sloan will remain at the club for the next few seasons giving the club an opportunity to build around a group of talented local juniors.

“Re-signing is a proud moment in my career,” Sloan told dragons.com.au.

“It’s good news for the club that there’s a few of us staying put and remaining with our friends and family. None of us wanted to leave as this is our home.

“It’s exciting being in the first-grade squad having come through the juniors together. It’s a cool moment for all of us.

“We’re all proud to wear the Red V jersey and we’re keen to take it back to where it needs to be, playing finals footy.

“I was put in the deep end last year, but it was an opportunity I was more than happy to take. My debut was the best moment of my life and to get four more games afterwards was very pleasing.

Sloan made five NRL appearances in 2021 and finished with six tries, two try assists, 13 tackle breaks, 2 linebreaks and 107 running metres per game.

He also featured in the Dragons’ Jersey Flegg Cup side in 2021 as well as in The Knock-On Effect NSW Cup where he played three games and finished with two tries, three tackle breaks, two linebreaks and 99 running metres per game.
