Will Penisini commits to the Eels

The Parramatta Eels are excited to announce Will Penisini has extended his contract for two years and will remain at the Club until at least the end of 2025.

At just 20 years of age, Will cemented his spot in the top 30 playing every game this season including the Grand Final and earned a representative jersey for Tonga at last year’s World Cup.

“The Eels jersey means a lot to me, I grew up in the system and to be playing alongside my mates for the Club I’ve loved my whole life is surreal,” said Will.

“Brad and the coaching staff have helped me come through the junior pathways since I was 14, I’m grateful for all the opportunities and the support I’ve had at the Club.

“We finished the 2022 season strongly and I think we’ve laid a good platform to really challenge in the coming years."

Parramatta Eels General Manager of Football Mark O’Neill said “It’s great to see another local junior commit his future to the Eels. Will is humble and hard working, and he displays the leadership skills that we’re looking for at our Club.

“His selection in the Tongan squad for the World Cup is was a great reward for his outstanding performances during the season, there’s no doubt he has a bright future ahead of him at the Eels.”

In addition to his rugby league career, Will is currently studying a Bachelor of Business degree.
