Whitehaven Rugby League are delighted to announce that Dion Aiye has signed a new three year deal taking the PNG international until the end of 2025 and complete 10 years at the LEL Arena. 

A firm fans favourite since joining the club ahead of the 2015 season he has racked up more than a half century of tries as he is now into is eighth season at the club. 

Head coach Jonty Gorley about the retainment of the Papau New Guinean saying “To get Dion signed up for the next three seasons is a massive boost for us, we need players of Dion's calibre if we are to try to keep on improving.

Everyone sees every week what Dion brings to the team, we are 100% a better team when he is on the pitch. His carries are strong and defensively there's no-one better on his day, he is a bit of an "xfactor" for us and teams are wary when he plays. 

As a coach he is great to have there are no negatives with him even though he's not as young as he was, he is still one of the fittest and best trainers we have. He just goes out and does a job every time he trains and plays.

Club director Ashley Kilpatrick spoke saying “ It’s amazing news to have Dion signed on for the next 3 seasons which will take him to 10 years at whitehaven, what more can be said for Dion he’s often our go to man, his defence, attack & character off the field have made him a fan favourite. I think having Dion tied down for the next 3 years shows our intent going into next season to help us push into that top 8.”
