Manly have extended the contracts of young props Addin Fonua-Blake and Taniela Paseka, with the pair signing on for a further two years.

Fonua-Blake was already contracted until the 2020 season meaning his new deal takes him until the end of 2022, while Paseka’s extension now sees him remain a Sea Eagle until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Fonua-Blake has played 60 games for Manly has was involved in all 24 in 2018, while Paseka made his debut earlier this year and finished the season with 13 first-grade appearances.

“It’s a wonderful signing for our Club. Addin can become one of the great Manly Warringah Sea Eagles front-rowers in its history,” Hasler said of Fonua-Blake on the club’s website.

“This is something that Addin has really worked hard for. The most pleasing aspect is that he has a great appreciation of how he has got there and he understands it.”

Hasler also spoke to about Paseka, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for the 21-year-old.

“Taniela is a willing learner and he has a lot of experience around him. I have no doubt that he will graduate to be an outstanding NRL front-rower,” Hasler said.
