Dufty, who was off-contract at the end of 2018, has penned a one-year extension.

"It's great to be here for another year. I thought being at the Dragons was the best opportunity for me moving forward in my rugby league career," he said.

"Last season was a big milestone in my life and moving forward to 2018 I'm very excited with the position I currently find myself in.



"It means the world to be where I'm at now. Coming through the St George ranks and being a local junior, it's great to be able to remind kids that you can play for the team you dreamed of playing for."

Dufty, a Dragons junior, made his NRL debut for the club in 2017.

Last year the 22-year-old scored three tries in seven first-grade appearances.
