Centres Jacob Loko and Ryan Morgan, backrower Taniela Lasalo, prop Mitchell Allgood and Tautai, who left the club in 2009, have all agreed deals that will keep them with the Eels until the end of 2013.
Parramatta chief executive Paul Osborne said the signings were a direct result of the club’s commitment to retaining its best young players.
“We have a terrific junior representative program at the Eels and Steve Kearney is building our future around it,” Osborne said.
“The retention of our own players is an integral part of the football program and something we addressed as an area we needed to improve on at the start of this year.
“The decision from our young guys to stick with us is a great boost for the club and it’s another sign we are heading in the right direction.”
“You see so many Parra juniors out there playing for other clubs and I know it’s something the fans sometimes get frustrated with, so for us to re-sign these young guys is a huge boost,” Hindmarsh said.
“Put them alongside our other experienced guys like Tim Mannah, Luke Burt, Ben Smith, Matt Keating, Jarryd Hayne and the new players joining us in Chris Sandow, Ben Roberts, Esi Tonga and now Taulima – it’s looking like a great mix.
