The Manly Sea Eagles have received a huge boost ahead of their grand final appearance with the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday with back rower Brent Kite agreeing to extend his contract for at least another two years.
The new deal, which will be finalised following the grand final, will see Kite’s stay with the Sea Eagles extended until at least the end of 2013.
“All looks good, agreed to terms and look like sticking around for a couple of years,” Kite told Sportsnewsfirst.com.au.
“We’ll start with a couple and see how we go from there which is fine. I think my form will determine if I can get another one out after that but two’s good.
“We’ll do all that once the footy is over and done with (this year).”
The 30-year-old Queanbeyan Junior began his career with Manly in 2005 following a three-year stint with St George Illawarra, a former Test and Origin star Kite admitted while the nervous leading up to a title shot never go away, they do become easier to manage with the more big game football under the belt.
