The Parramatta Eels have today announced the signing of outside back George Jennings for the 2017 season.
George is the younger brother of Eels centre Michael and joins the Eels from the Penrith Panthers on a one year deal.
Head Coach Brad Arthur said that George will provide strong competition for places in the Eels backline for 2017.
“When given the opportunity George has shown plenty of ability at NRL level so we expect him to push hard for selection in 2017,” Arthur said.
“George will bring speed and strength to our backline next year and we look forward to him joining the squad for preseason training.”
George Jennings joins Nathan Brown and Siosaia Vave as new signings for the Eels in 2017.
