The Parramatta Eels have re-signed up-and-coming duo Taniela Lasalo and Mitchell Allgood and are confident of keeping powerful NYC front-rower Peni Tepero.
Eels Chief Executive Paul Osborne confirmed on 1Eyed Eel Fanlink today that Lasalo and Allgood will be with the club next year, with both signing two years deals that will keep them in the blue and gold until 2013.
Allgood and Lasalo have been the big improvers in the Eels squad this year – both started the year as fringe first graders but have established themselves as regulars in the NRL squad with Lasalo locking down a starting second row spot.
Osborne also said that the Eels were confident of retaining powerful NYC prop forward Peni Terepo.
“We have made an offer to Peni and are confident he will be staying as well,” Osborne posted on the Fanlink thread.
Parramatta have been successful in retaining their young talent this year, a commitment that Stephen Kearney made earlier this year to members when he outlined his plans for the club.
The Eels had already locked up their dynamic Mackay duo with Patrick O’Hanlon and Marmin Barba extending their contracts with the club. Osborne also confirmed to Fanlink that NYC captain Rory Brien has two years left on his existing contract.
