Stone extends until 2026

Workhorse Ray Stone has pledged his future to the Dolphins after inking a brand-new contract with the NRL club today.

Stone has signed a two-year deal that ties him to the club until the end of the 2026 season.

After moving from the Parramatta Eels to be part of the Dolphins’ foundation roster, the 26-year-old quickly cemented himself in the team’s forward pack.
Stone has now played 26 matches for the Dolphins, with many more to come with at least another two years locked in at the club.

Dolphins’ chief executive Terry Reader said the manner in which Stone played rugby league was easy to admire.

“Ray has been one of the real quiet achievers of our entry to the NRL,” said Reader.

“He has been a cornerstone of what we are trying to build here in the way he goes about his business with a minimum amount of fuss but with a maximum amount of effectiveness.

Ray turns up and puts his absolute best onto the training paddock at every session and onto the field in every game.

“That is why his teammates love playing with him, and his coaches love coaching him.”

Stone joined the Dolphins after playing 31 matches for the Eels and quickly underlined his reputation as a hard hitter in defence.

He has missed just one match in 2024 and been a major contributor to the Dolphins’ surge into the NRL’s top four after 10 rounds. Stone said he could see bright times ahead.

“I am very happy to have signed a new deal with the Dolphins,” he said.

“My family have enjoyed the move to Queensland, and I am pleased at what we are building here on the field at the club.

“I am excited about what this team could do over the next few years.”
