Setaimata Sa has signed a new one-year contract with the Catalan Dragons.

Sa, signed from Sydney Roosters in 2010, has scored nine tries in 39 appearances for the Dragons and played at centre, second row and half-back.

The 23-year-old Samoan said: "The team is getting better week after week under Trent, and I want to get silverware this year or next year."

Sa has five caps for Samoa, and also played for New Zealand in the 2008 World Cup Final win over Australia.

He continued: "All my family is happy to live here and things are always easier when the team is winning. All the new players have added a lot of quality to our squad and I think the players are much closer from each other this year than in 2010.

"To have two other island boys with me is also a big help, as I am pretty close to Lopini Paea and Daryl Millard."

Dragons coach Trent Robinson said: "Sa is a player I have valued working with this season, and he is an important re-signing for 2012.

"He possesses the rare qualities of toughness and finesse in one package. We see him as a young player with the ability to help improve the Catalans again next season, through his absolute hunger to compete in training and in the game."
