Hooker Freddy Lussick is staying with the Vodafone Warriors until the end of the 2024 NRL season.
The 21-year-old has signed a two-year deal after originally joining the club in early May for the rest of the 2022 campaign.
“Freddy has settled in brilliantly since joining us,” said Vodafone Warriors general manager football Craig Hodges.
“While he’s a great fit for our club as deputy to Wayde Egan, he has also really impressed us with what he has provided off the field.”
Lussick had made nine appearances for the Sydney Roosters and two as a loan player to the St George Illawarra Dragons before joining the Vodafone Warriors.
Since then he has had three outings, his first as Vodafone Warrior #270 off the bench in the 30-32 Magic Round loss to South Sydney at Suncorp Stadium.
He was again used off the bench the following week against the Dragons before starting against the Newcastle Knights in round 12.
He’s the youngest of three Lussick brothers to fashion NRL careers. The eldest of them Darcy played 117 NRL games in total for Manly Warringah and Parramatta from 2011 to 2017 before playing for the Toronto Wolfpack and then the Salford Red Devils. Hooker Joey had one game for Manly in 2017, spent three seasons with Salford in England, returned to the NRL to play nine times for Parramatta and is now back in England with St Helens.
