The Parramatta Eels have today announced the re-signing of outside back Brad Takairangi until the end of the 2019 season.

Takairangi debuted for the Blue and Gold in 2015 and has become a Club favorite passing the 100 NRL game milestone in Round 22 of this year against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.

Head Coach Brad Arthur says the re-signing of Takairangi until the end of 2019 is a great show of commitment to the Blue and Gold.

“I am pleased that Brad has re-signed with the Eels until the end of the 2019 season,” Arthur said.

“Brad is a leader and key member of our squad and he has been one of our most consistent performers since joining us in 2015.”

“It was a priority for us to secure Brad for the next few seasons and it is pleasing to see he has committed to the club for the long term.”

The re-signing of Takairangi follows the signings of Nathan Brown and George Jennings in the past week.
