SAINTS second row Dominique Peyroux has extended his contract at the club by another two seasons.

The 29-year-old back rower, who has just returned from a broken arm, has been one of the team's most improved players under Justin Holbrook.

Although initially signed as a centre, the penetration, aggressive running and big hits he puts in have made him a perfect fit as a right edge second row.

Coach Holbrook said: “It’s great for us to keep Dom.

“When he was out of the side everyone realised just how valuable a player he was to the team. He gets through a lot of work that people don’t see.

“He is an aggressive player with lots of energy who gives us real strike on the edges.

“He has worked really hard in pre-season and throughout the year to become a player we all love having on the field.

“I’m really happy he has decided to stay with us as he has been consistently very good for us every week.”

Peyroux, who has scored 10 tries for Saints, said: “I’m blessed to re-sign with the club. It has been a very exciting year so far but we know there is still work to do.

“I have had a frustrating last few weeks through injury but I am really pleased to be back out on the field with the brothers.

“Thanks to the fans for all the support.”
