“I feel so comfortable here at the Roosters. I’m really enjoying being part of the team and have made some great friends here, on and off the footy field,” said Mortimer.
“The club’s been great to me, I know my role and I’m learning so much – and that’s a big part of the reason I really wanted to stay at the club. I’m excited that I’ll continue to represent the Roosters for a further two years,” he added.
Roosters Head Coach, Trent Robinson, was delighted to have Mortimer secured in the Club’s long-term plans.
“Daniel is a true clubman. He is a valued contributor to our club and a quality person on and away from the footy field. Apart from sharing the hooking role with Jake friend, Daniel gives us great depth in our halves, making him an invaluable member of our squad.
“His best footy is still ahead of him and we are very pleased to have Morts on board for a further two years,” he said.
23 year-old Mortimer has appeared in every Roosters game so far this season. He joined the Roosters in 2012 and captained the Roosters feeder side, Newtown Jets, in their 2012 NSW Cup victory.
