The Parramatta Eels today announced the re-signing of strong performing senior player Casey McGuire and boom NYC prop Peni Terepo.
McGuire, 31, has signed a one-year extension that will see him through until the end of the 2012 season while Terepo, 20, agreed to a two-year-deal amidst strong competition from rival clubs.
Eels coach Stephen Kearney said McGuire’s versatility and experience had come to the fore this season.
“Casey’s done a great job for us in a number of important positions this year,” Kearney said.

Terepo’s re-signing follows that of Jacob Loko, Taniela Lasalo, Mitchell Allgood, Ryan Morgan, Pat O’Hanlon and Rory Brien – all of which have made the step up to NRL football this year.
