The Parramatta Eels have announced the signing of former Blue & Gold player Tony Williams on a one year contract until the end of the 2018 season.
Williams made his NRL debut for the Parramatta Eels in 2008 before stints with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Cronulla Sharks.
The 165 NRL game veteran will bring plenty of experience to the Blue & Gold forward pack says Head Coach Brad Arthur.
“Tony will be a great addition to our squad in 2018 and will bring a wealth of experience and depth to our forward pack this season.“ Brad Arthur said.
“Not only will Tony be a welcome addition on the field, but he will also be a wealth of knowledge to our established squad.”
“We look forward to welcoming Tony back into the Blue & Gold, the Club where he made his NRL debut a decade ago.”
Tony Williams joins Kane Evans and Jaeman Salmon as new Parramatta Eels recruits ahead of the 2018 season.
