Warrington Wolves have handed third-choice hooker Brad Dwyer a new two-year contract that will keep him at the club until November 2016.
The 21-year-old, who is understudy to veteran hookers Michael Monaghan and Micky Higham, made his first-team debut for the Wolves back in 2012 and was sent out on loan to Huddersfield Giants last season.
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 focussed on improving, and for that reason we are delighted to extend his contract."
Dwyer said: "Tony's backing me; I've just got to be patient and bide my time."
