Jess Sergis will remain with the Sydney Roosters until at least the end of 2027 after signing the longest contract in the club's NRLW history.

Five-eighth Tarryn Aiken will join her for at least the next two seasons after inking a new deal of her own.

Sergis's contract makes the centre one of only five NRLW players locked in through 2027, though others have contract options that could be triggered to keep them with their clubs for that long.

The NSW State of Origin star joined the Roosters for the 2021 season, having made her NRLW debut with St George Illawarra during the inaugural competition in 2018.

In her first campaign as a Rooster, Sergis played in the club's grand final defeat of her former side.

She continues to form the most powerful centre pairing in the league with captain Isabelle Kelly and had a career-best season in 2023, scoring seven tries from six games.

A finger injury sidelined her towards the end of the season and kept her out of the Roosters' surprise semi-final loss to Gold Coast.

"I'm a Rooster through and through so I'm stoked to know that I'll be here for at least the next four years," Sergis said.

Aiken joined the Roosters from Brisbane in 2023 and quickly became vital to their attacking set-up, finishing the season with more line-break assists than any other NRLW player and the equal-most try assists.

The five-eighth finished second in the Dally M Medal count behind only Newcastle superstar Tamika Upton.

"I know that there's a lot more improvement in me as a player and us as a team, so I'm excited about what's to come over the next few years," Aiken said.

The signings come after the club re-signed Kelly for three more seasons following the Roosters' semi-final loss.

The defeat marked the second time in as many seasons that the heavily-favoured Roosters bowed out in the grand final qualifier.
