The Sea Eagles have locked away star duo Jake and Tom Trbojevic until the end of the 2026 season.

Both Jake and Tom were off contract at the start of next season but have secured deals to see them remain with Manly for the next six seasons.

Jake made his debut with Manly in 2013 and has since played in 119 NRL games, while also representing both the Blues and Kangaroos. Jake has also collected three Roy Bull Best and Fairest awards, taking out the honours in 2015, 2018 and 2019.

Tom made his debut two years after his brother and has notched up a staggering 44 tries across his 89 games for the Sea Eagles. Like his brother, Tom has also represented NSW and Australia while picking up a Best and Fairest award in 2016.

Manly CEO Stephen Humphreys spoke during the announcement of the brothers’ extension at the Sydney Academy of Sport in Narrabeen, acknowledging the monumental moment for the club.

“It is brilliant news for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, our loyal Members and corporate partners to know that two of our most favoured sons, Jake and Tom Trbojevic, have now committed to the Club for a further six years beyond the 2020 season,” Humphreys told the club’s website.

“They are outstanding young men, a great credit to themselves, their family, the Sea Eagles and the great game of Rugby League. They are both proud Manly juniors and we are all very proud of them.

“Jake and Tom thoroughly deserve these lucrative new contracts and we are thrilled that they will continue to be integral to our plans and performance for many years to come.”

Manly coach Des Hasler added his delight for Jake and Tom.

“Jake and Tom will continue their journey in becoming part of the Manly folklore when we speak about great Manly players,” Hasler said.

“They are fashioned as part of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles silk and they have stated their legacy is now all about the Manly jersey.”

Jake added his excitement with the extension.

“The Sea Eagles mean the world to Tom and me. We’re proud to be Manly men,’’ Jake said.

“To know that we will be playing together for the Sea Eagles for a further six years after next season is an incredible feeling.

“I believe this Club is certainly heading in the right direction. I can’t wait to get back to Lottoland and play in front of our great Members again next season.”

Brother Tom added his joy with the news.

“Jake and I love playing for Manly. It’s our home,” Tom said.

“I know this team can certainly be finals contenders for many years to come, and hopefully, we can lift that NRL premiership trophy in the near future.

“I’m really looking forward to returning to the field next season and playing in front of our fantastic Members at Lottoland.”


  1. Heart and soul of manly. The rest of the team lift when playing alongside these two. Bright days ahead for the Sea Eagles.

  2. $1mil+ is a lot to pay for turbs and his mistakes and for the next 7 years is just stupid, looks like Des has brought his bulldogs recruitment form back to mwse.

  3. With three 1 million dollar plus players add Tuapua in the Manly camp thats 4 players on over 4 mil , and with 6 players leaving the Back to Back Premiers Sydney Roosters in Cronk Retired, And five chasing money with Mitchell, Tetevano, Ferguson, Napa, and Matterson.

    Its time to realise Manly are the team doing cash deals under the table and not the Roosters

    For if Mitchell wants a Million then why is the deal taken off the table when simply Mitchell would have taken the amount offered and the rest under the table. Cash deals under the table would also have retained Napa, Ferguson all of them. But there were no dodgy deals and they all play for other clubs now.

  4. Them is both worth 1.5mill +++ and with DCE they will deliver 3 prems in a row !!
    Tommy will be Australian Fullback and Australian captain and Origin superstar better than Thirsten
    Jurbo will get better with his penalties and be Australian halfback and back up Australian Captain (when turbo is injurd) and SOO star better than JohnnyRap.r, DCE and Jurbo can share again just like in the last test.

  5. @screamer
    oh whats up ?? too much truth for you in 1 day ??
    struggling to keep up as usual – MWSE SHOPPED Taupau to the ROOSTERS in 2018
    Some of us actually know who Naveen really is – don’t be like Naveen screamer.

  6. Some of us know you are really mychookmycar who uses stolen usernames from ie. Angryeagle, naveenisgod, from other forums.
    You also use Panthers3 to try to stir sh!t between manly fans and other fans.
    Pretty sad if someone has to resort to that. 💩

  7. Wow who would have thought the Turbos staying with manly? And the dogs were oh soooo close!!! 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

  8. In all honesty, and I’m NOT “throwing chips to the Seagulls” but I don’t think the Turbo deal is a good one.
    Jake, yes, done, makes sense, is a good deal etc.
    Tom, no. I think he’s well behind Teddy and RTS, and probably behind Ponga already. Add to that he seems a bit injury prone and/or soft.

  9. Wasn’t going to comment cause if too many noobs these days.
    But eels surely your stirring by saying ponga ahead of turbo??
    Yes Tom has had some injuries and yes Tedesco is the number 1 fullback. But ponga is well behind Tom. The affects they both have in games when Tom is playing there is no comparison.
    Yes ponga can put a brilliant play on randomly, but then he isn’t seen for the rest of the game. Turbo is always threatening and always putting in and has way more influence over a game then ponga does now or ever will

  10. Bob, I wasn’t stirring, but will admit I was a bit hesitant re the Ponga/Turbo comparison.
    I actually think Ponga is a better/more talented player, but Turbo goes that bit harder/that extra yard, and probably only for Manly.
    Either way, I think they’re both well behind Teddy, and a fair distance behind RTS.

    “Tom and Jake will be going to the roosters in 2026”

    Impossible TWlT0NE, at 31 and 29, The Turbo brothers fit perfectly into the TRANSlT.lounge Soufths quality of old washed up player category.

    “I wonder if theangryeagle, naveenisadog and panthers3 are all part of the wood duck stable????”

    When did the penny drop?
    She’s wants us all to believe there is more than 1 sombreros fan on ZT.
    More loaded than their salary cap $$

  14. “When did the penny drop?

    BenH. What have you got to say about that?

  15. Nice work ManWar78. I now grant you, your tradesmanship in handing out nuttery awards also. If all else fails revert back to the old trade of handing out CL🤡WN awards such as TWlT0NE. 👍

  16. My source who informed me of the mundine signing 1 week before announced has just told me Jake Friend wants out as well like Latrell but going to Manly.
    A lot of unrest at the sombreros.
    I will tell you why in a cpl of days but has to do with Mr Life Member Cronk.

  17. Haha. I’ll add my diploma in nuttery and clown awarding to my resume. 📝🏅 Im sure to make good use of it on this site. 🤣😂🤣😂

  18. Who hands out life memberships to someone who has only played 2 years with a team and been with another for 14 years? No wonder there is unrest. Sounds like that movie “sleeping with the enemy”.

  19. Sydney Roosters know what an immortal Cronk is, two years for two premierships proves his knowledge and presents fully transformed the entire club. Nick Politis spoke on behalf of every Rooster player & fan announcing a life membership to Cooper Cronk.

    Every player is in awe of his professionalism and work ethic.
    The Roosters only had this future immortal playing for two seasons but they never want him to leave.
    Cronk’s drive for perfection rubbed off on the entire club.

    We all know who was the genius running the Melbourne success in his past 14 seasons. I can guarantee it was not Smith.

  20. TWlT0NE isn’t it about time you learn the only players that leave the Roosters are money chasers. Unlike the TRANSlT.L0UNGE club Soufths who have disgruntled players leaving and arriving left right and centre.

    Friend is never leaving the Roosters. Rushing him back into a grand final team should even tell your nutter instincts Twentyone that the Roosters hold him in the highest regard. He is a captain.

    “Who hands out life memberships to someone who has only played 2 years with a team and been with another for 14 years?”

    The Sydney Roosters.

  22. Spot on TWlT0NE, the Sydney Roosters know how to reward the bloke who steered them to back to back premierships.

    If Cooper Cronk was playing for soufths they would not have made him a life member of their club, simply because they have no Leagues club to make players life members.

    Bwahahahahahaha…..and the players around him would have failed him. As everybody is aware, Soufths are filled with a team of nobody dud.chokers.

  23. The zsydney Roosters know how to reward immortals as they have had the most immortals who played for them. Cronk wil become an immortal and join other Rooster Legends Dally Messenger, Dave Brown, Artie Beetson, and Bob Fulton who captain Australia from the Roosters in 1978.

  24. BennyHill 95% of the accolades you give Cronk were achieved at different club yet rewarded with a life membership for that at another club?
    Comical to say the least.

    “Surely You can’t be claiming the great Bonzo as a roosters legend”

    All roosters legends already legends at a previous club before poached.

  26. ManWar78 Bozo played with the Roosters for three seasons and coached for 4 years as Bozo was the last person to captain coach a first grade team in 1979. For a toatal of 6 years at the Roosters. Yes we claim him as a Rooster also.

    He never captained Australia at Manly but from the Roosters was Aussie captain on the 1978 Kangaroo Tour.
    He captained the Roosters to the 1978 Rich Amco Cup after he also played in the losing 1977 Amco Cup Final.
    Bozo played in the Historical winning 1977 Wills Cup Final at the SCG in front of the Queen of England. And won the 1979 and 1981 Craven Mild/Wills Cup.
    Coached the Roosters to Back to Back Minor Premierships in 1980-81 making the 1980 grand final.

    Yes ManWar 1978 of coarse we claim A share of Bob Fulton as an immortal and a Rooster.

    “At least all the Souths immortals and and life members are ALL grass roots Souths.”

    TWlT0NE you goose Bwahahahaha……Bwahahahaha
    Soufths have only got one immortal Clive Churchill.

  28. Sorry Ben but The Great Bonzo won 3 premierships with Manly as a player and zero with Easts. Played with Manly for 10 years and coached for 13 years winning 2 premierships and has always been behind the scenes pulling all the strings at the club. He was Australian coach while at Manly and recognized as an immortal for his time at Manly. His sons and grandsons all played for Manly. Sea Eagle through and through. Nobody talks about him as a rooster not even he does. I don’t believe the roosters have given him a life membership yet either? If you want to claim a share of him I’ll give you his pinky finger. Its like north sydney trying to claim cliff lyons cause he played 1 year for them. Did Arthur Beetson regard himself as a rooster or a tiger/eel?

  29. It is irrelevant what personal opinions are, what matters is the fact he played footy not as a has been but at his peak with the Roosters and like I said acheived the highest honor in rep footy playing as a captain for his country and club the Roosters.

    The statistic reads for this immortal that he played for both Manly and Easts. So that gives Roosters fans every right to co-claim Fulton as a part of our immortal also. If he did not ever play for the Roosters then certainly we could not say that. But he did play for the Roosters.

    As for Big Artie Balmain and Parra can lay claim to him along with Rooster fans. He played for all three clubs. When Cronk one day becomes an immortal the Melbourne and Rooster fans have claims to him.

    Sure Bozo is a Manly man but he had an affair with the Roosters. If Bozo had a marital affair and had children from what you are saying ManWar78 that they have no right to call him da.d. indeed they have every right to call him da.d.

  30. I heard the Trobvoivich brothers were offered life memberships if they went to the sombreros as part of their package.

  31. Nah. 6 years is too long for a life membership there. Just ask bob fulton and cooper cronk. 🤣😂🤣😂😂🤣😂
