Bukuya has agreed a new two-year deal which will keep him at the club until the end of 2020.

The back-rower debuted in the NRL with Cronulla in 2008.

He has spent his whole career with the Sharks, barring one season across the pond with the Warriors in 2014.

Bukuya returned to the Shire in 2015 and was part of the Cronulla side that won the grand final two years ago.

The 29-year-old has played 114 games for the club, scoring 23 tries, since debuting as a 19-year-old.
