Wests Tigers have today announced the signing of Zane Musgrove for the coming three years.
The new agreement will see Musgrove join Wests Tigers until at least the end of the 2021 NRL season.
The front-rower has played 27 NRL games since making his first-grade debut for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 1 of the 2016 season.
The 22-year-old also made his international debut in the 2017 World Cup, playing for Samoa against Tonga.
Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire said he looked to working with Musgrove over the coming seasons.
"When I worked with Zane previously and he played consecutive games I could see that he was growing into a really strong player," said Maguire. "With more experience I can see him excelling in the future.
"He brings size, strength and skill to our pack and works hard on his defence," he said. "I look forward to working with him to help him reach his potential."
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe welcomed Musgrove to the club.
"As a club we're excited that Zane has joined us and we look forward to being able to provide him with an opportunity at Wests Tigers to pursue a clear pathway to progress his NRL career," said Pascoe.
