Parramatta re-signed Dylan Brown to a three-year contract extension on Tuesday, and are set to announce the re-signing of Oregon Kaufusi later on Wednesday.

Kaufusi is set to put pen to paper on a two-year extension, which will take him through to the end of the 2022 season.

According to Fox Sports, the Eels will lock down Kaufusi’s signing on Wednesday before turning their attentions to hooker Reed Mahoney.

Mahoney is currently locked down for 2020, but Parramatta will be hoping to keep the rake around long-term.

The Eels are strengthening their core one man at a time, after bringing Ryan Matterson and Regan Campbell-Gillard to the club.

It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for Parramatta this off-season, with both Stefano Utoikamanu and Trey Mooney leaving for the Tigers and Raiders respectively over the last month.

  1. Yep, and let’s get, or train up a back up hooker.
    It’s starting to look like the “yeah but next year” could actually be “next year” (or 2021).
    I really like what we’re building/have built, the increased professionalism of the club since the 2016 days etc.
    Looking at the player group, as a whole, and I think it’s fair to say it’s solid to very solid. No real “superstars” taking up 10% plus of the cap but plenty of “better that average” (at FG level) across the park, and most are still growing/learning/yet to reach the peaks of their careers.
    .

  2. Don’t forget there is stone for DH and salmon (halves and centre), there and Rhys Davies, Schneider as well waiting in the wings.
    People have been critical of BA in the past about juniors, but he had blooded a number of them over the last couple of years and they are lock-ins.
    Dare say there are more to come.
    Forget what James Hooper says.
