Warrington Wolves hooker Brad Dwyer has signed a new two-year contract to keep him at the club until November 2016.
The 21-year-old, who made his first-team debut in March 2012, has made 14 appearances for the club, two of them coming this season.
Dwyer said: "I'm made up. It's a bit of security for me and has come off the back of a lot of hard work.
"I would like more game time than what I've had so far, but it's about being patient and I'm happy with where I am."
The hooker had a spell on loan with Huddersfield last season and also spent time in the Championship with Swinton Lions.
Warrington head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith said: "Brad has progressed well in the time he has been here.
"He is learning his trade behind two high-quality hookers and is biding his time, taking advantage of the learning experience.
"He's done a great job each time he's stepped out for us and he is an inspiration around the training ground, highly focused on improving and, for that reason, we are delighted to extend his contract.
"It's great to be bringing these young players through. The experience for them is enormous and they are helping to enhance our current squad.
"The depth of new talent coming is great for the club."
