St Helens' Wales international Morgan Knowles has committed his future to his club at least until the end of 2021 after agreeing a new four-year contract.
The 20-year-old back-row forward, who was in the 24-man Wales squad that flew out to Australia on Tuesday for the World Cup, was short-listed for the 2017 Super League young player of the year award after a breakthrough season in which he played all but two of Saints' 32 games.
"Morgan has had an excellent year and his new contract is well deserved," St Helens coach Justin Holbrook said. "Since I joined the club, I have been impressed with his work-rate, ability to adapt and total commitment to his game and team-mates.
"His nomination for young player of the year was recognition of these attributes and I am really looking forward to watching him continue to develop over the next four seasons."
