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.

  1. Been abit quiet lately, hope he finds his touch in time to pantz the Faiders and there seal slap ,,, baaaaaaaa

  2. no offence to the fans but who cares!

    honestly, this guy has not lived up to his contract worth or hype

    • The guy is only 21, not yet in his prime. And the hype was not his own doing. Personally I am very happy with this news. Tepai will be a mainstay in the pack and when he does hit his prime will be one of the better backrowers in the comp

  3. He’s doing his job every week and one of the first picked. In my mind he will be the next long term captain of the club and a good chance to be a 300 gamer with the club.
    Good news.
