Former Parramatta Eels forward Kelepi Tanginoa has signed with the Manly Sea Eagles for the remainder of the 2017 season.
Tanginoa was released by the Eels before the June 30 deadline.
The 23-year-old trained for the first time under Coach Trent Barrett, who says the former Parramatta Eels forward is still a few weeks away from being in the NRL system at the Sea Eagles.
“Kelepi is a great acquisition to our forward pack for the rest of the season and although it will take him a few weeks to learn our structures and the way we play, I am delighted to have him at the Sea Eagles,’’ Barrett said.
Tanginoa has played 16 NRL games since making his first-grade debut for Parramatta in 2013.
