Backrower Sebastine Ikahihifo has had his contract with the Warriors extended to the end of next year.

Ikahihifo made his NRL debut in 2012 and will rack up just his 23rd match for the Warriors when he starts at lock against Penrith in Auckland on Sunday.

However, almost half of those appearances have come in 2014 and he played a key role in Chad Townsend's decisive try in the 19-10 win over Brisbane last weekend.

Warriors general manager of football Dean Bell says Ikahihifo, 23, has been one of the club's most improved players this season and is clearly relishing the chance to get consistent game time.
