Championship: Brambani signs contract extension at Sheffield

Sheffield Eagles have announced that half-back Dominic Brambani has signed a one-year extension to his contract with the club.

The 29-year-old is currently in his second stint with the club having first joined back in 2007. After two seasons with the Eagles he left to pursue his career in Australia before returning to England, this time joining the Dewsbury Rams.

2012 saw Brambani return to the Eagles where he played a major role in their back-to-back Championship Grand Final victories.

He said: “I’m over the moon!

“Sheffield is a club close to my heart; I love being here and love what Tubbs [coach Mark Aston] is all about.

“I’ve been back here for three years now, I’m enjoying my rugby and excited for next season.”

Coach Aston added: “I am delighted that Dom has signed a new contract with us. He is the ultimate professional and this is characterised by his approach to the game. Dom will be the first to training and the first to the field. He is always looking for ways to improve his game.

“We have a lot of young lads coming through the ranks at the club and they would do well to learn from Dom’s example.”
