St George Illawarra five-eighth Jamie Soward has signed a three-year contract extension, keeping him at the NRL club until the end of the 2013 season.

Soward has turned his career around since being signed by the Dragons from the Roosters in 2007 and he said he's delighted with his new deal.

"I wanted to stay at the Dragons and I am very happy that I will be here for at least the next three seasons," Soward said.

"I am also very happy to have this all finalised heading into the season and to know where I am at for the next few years."

Last year was something of a breakthrough season for Soward as he broke the Dragons' record for points scoring in a season, surpassing Mark Riddell's tally of 166 with a mammoth 234 points as his team claimed the minor premiership.

Soward also gained his first representative honours in 2009, playing for NSW Country in the annual City v Country clash.

Dragons coach Wayne Bennett said signing the deal before the start of the 2010 season would only benefit the club and player.

"It is great that Jamie has signed to stay at the club and we are all elated that it is done before the season has started so he can concentrate on playing football," Bennett said.

The Dragons begin this year's campaign against last year's grand finalists Parramatta on Friday night.
