Tony Williams
Staying at Brookvale

The Manly Sea Eagles have more to celebrate after their recent premiership win, re-signing Test forward Tony Williams for two years. Several clubs were chasing the powerhouse 22-year-old, but Williams will remain at Brookvale until the end of 2013.

“It’s great news for the club to secure a quality young player like Tony for two more seasons. He’s taken his game to another level this year and we’re confident he’ll continue to develop under the great coaching staff here at Manly,” Manly Chief Operating Officer David Perry said.

Williams is glad his future is decided.

“We are a really close knit family here at the Sea Eagles. I always wanted to stay and I’m enjoying my footy here and want to stay as long as I can,” Williams said.

The 118kg giant known as “T-Rex” moved into the forwards this year, and was near unstoppable in attack, and was equally damaging in defence. He scored 6 tries this year for Manly in his 20 appearances.
