The Parramatta Eels have re-signed hard-hitting backrower Tepai Moeroa for two years, extending his contract until the end of the 2019 season.

Moeroa first signed with the Parramatta Eels as a 14-year-old in 2010, and has become one of the most versatile forwards in the game.

In announcing Moeroa’s re-signing for the next two seasons, Parramatta Eels Head Coach Brad Arthur said he was pleased the Club has retained one of its juniors who has developed into a dominant forward.

“Tepai is a gifted athlete and a consistent performer who adds a great deal of power to our forward pack. I’m looking forward to seeing him take his performance to the next level this season,” Arthur said.

The 21 year old is in his fourth season of NRL after making his debut in Round 18 of the 2014 NRL Season and has played 53 NRL games with the Parramatta Eels. The former Australian Schoolboy rugby player represented his native Cook Islands in the Rugby League World All Stars earlier this year.
