Parramatta has re-signed exciting up and coming play maker Clint Gutherson for next three years, extending his contract until the end of the 2019 season.

Gutherson’s form in 2016 has won him plaudits and recognition as a vital player in the backline for the Eels, playing in every one of the 24 games during the season.

“Clint is a great talent and has already made his mark on our team in his first season,” said Head Coach Brad Arthur.

“He has added a great deal of skill into our back line and I’m looking forward to seeing him create more opportunities when the next season kicks off in 2017."

The 22 year old made his representative debut for the NSW City team in 2016.

Gutherson now joins Corey Norman and Manu Ma'u as Eels players who have extended their contracts till the 2019 season.
