Parramatta Eels prop Tim Mannah will extend his NRL career with the Club after signing a three year contract extension which will see him remain at Parramatta until the end of the 2019 season.

In announcing Mannah’s re-signing, Head Coach Brad Arthur said the Eels had retained a Club stalwart who had come through the ranks as a junior and established himself as a formidable forward.

“Tim’s contribution to the team and to the Club over the last eight years can never be undervalued,” Head Coach Brad Arthur said.

“His level of experience and commitment to Parramatta will continue to help, guide, and develop the next generation of players in our Club.”

A State of Origin representative for NSW and a leader both on and off the field, Mannah has accumulated 180 first grade games for the Eels having started his career with the Club in 2009.

Mannah has played his entire NRL career with Parramatta, and has won several awards for his achievements including the Ken Thornett Medal as the NRL Player’s Player in 2015.
