Pryce Signs Up for Long Term Saints Deal

Great Britain stand-off Leon Pryce has ended speculation over a switch to rugby union by signing a new four-year contract with St Helens.

The 26-year-old former Bradford utility player, who had 12 months left on his current deal, has pledged his future to the Grand Final runners-up until the end of the 2011 season.

"We are delighted to have secured Leon's services for a further four years," St Helens chairman Eamonn McManus. "We have now signed up James Roby, Jon Wilkin, James Graham, Paul Wellens and Leon as we continue to invest in the future of the club."

He added: "Not only will these players form the backbone of the side in years to come, but also the core of the Great Britain team."

Pryce, who had been linked moves to Saracens and Gloucester where his younger brother Karl had a brief spell last year, has scored 30 tries in 66 appearances since joining Saints from the Bulls two years ago.
