“It was an easy decision to sign on for another year, I’m committed to the Renegades and want to be part of us turning things around on the field,” Sutherland said.
“I’ve learnt a lot the last couple of years and there are some great people here for me to keep learning from. I’m determined to do all I can to keep growing my game and contributing to us being a successful team.”
