The Parramatta Eels have shored up their forward pack with the re-signing of towering backrower Shaun Lane on a three-year deal.

Lane joined the Eels in 2019 and was awarded the Jack Gibson NRL Coaches Award for best forward at the club in his first season. is reporting the new deal is worth around $1.3 million over the three years.

“Shaun has been great for the Club since joining us in 2019 and we are really pleased that he has decided to commit to the Club for the long term”, said Eels CEO Jim Sarantinos on the club website.

Lane's retention follows on from some other strong re-signings for the Blue and Gold club including Dylan Brown (2023), Oregon Kaufusi (2022) and Marata Niukore (2022).


  1. This is a great re-signing for the Eels, even if he isn’t a local junior 😉.

    What is most pleasing is that if the numbers are correct we haven’t paid overs to keep him, $433K per year seems about right, if not unders.

  2. Eels47 I agree completely at that price what a bargain for the eels, plus there’s no reason to suspect he’s performance should decrease.

  3. What would you know Terddy123, you have as much footy knowledge as the other clown, ClownOfPenrifth.

    Lane is going to be playing accordingly to his income. Evens signe with Parra for 600K so Lane will feel he needs to take his foot off the pedal for only 433K

  4. Very good re-signing and at a very good price.
    Was outstanding for us last season and will be again this season.

  5. Parramatta could end up being the 3rd Powerhouse club the way they are going. Making much better decisions than a few years ago.
    I think this is a good price for Lanes ability. He has plenty of upside. And Eels47 I agree, who cares if he is a local junior or not, I guess the ones that do are just looking for excuses as to why their clubs have not won anything for so long 🙂

I was gonna say you can bring mole52 the ropeablerooster and the other roosters fans on this site with you for back up, but your all the same person and we all know little cowards like you don’t have the guts to talk crap face to face! I’ll be a panthers stadium on the 14th boy I’ll update you where I’m seated on the night. You can come say hello and I can smack you up the side of your head. How’s that sound

    Good resigning by the Eels – they have really turned it around since the dark days of Ricky Stuart, Stephen Kearney etc
