Tim Mannah
Priority signing

The Parramatta Eels have moved to retain one of their best young talents, Tim Mannah

The young prop is off contract at the end of the season and the Eels have opened negotiations to extend his stay before rivals swoop.

”That’s something we’re looking at as we speak,” said Eels coach Stephen Kearney. ”He’s an important player for the club and he’s come through the club as a junior.”

In 2010, Mannah played for the both the City team and the New South Wales State of Origin team.
