The Sea Eagles have announced the signing of halfback Trent Hodkinson, for the remainder of the 2018 season and for 2019.

The 29-year-old was recently released from the Conulla Sharks to return to Manly, after playing there in 2010.

Hodkinson spent his first season at Brookvale Oval, before moving to play in Canterbury, Newcastle and Cronulla, playing 160 career games.

"Trent's experience and game management will be of enormous value to us,'' Sea Eagles coach Trent Barrett told

"As a person, Trent is also highly respected for the wonderful amount of work he does in the community, so he will bring plenty to the Club on and off the field. This is a great signing for Manly."

Hodkinson is available to be selected for the Sea Eagles for their clash with the Storm at AAMI Park on Saturday night.
