It will be his third club in the space of a year, but for Richie Fa’aoso, that will not matter – with the Manly Sea Eagles agreeing to a 2-year deal with the club, starting in the 2013 season.
Fa’aoso, who was a mid-season transfer to the Melbourne Storm from the Newcastle Knights, says that he is looking forward to playing for Manly, and making the Northern Beaches his home.
â€œI’m honoured that such a great club as Manly has given me an opportunity to continue my NRL career,â€ Faâ€™aoso said.
â€œI’m looking forward to the challenge of establishing myself within such a strong team.â€
Manly’s coach Geoff Toovey is looking forward to seeing Fa’aoso in the Maroon & White, and thinks the former Knights and current Storm prop, will be a handy addition to the side’s forward pack.
â€œRichie will be a strong addition to the team next year and provide some extra depth for us,â€ Toovey said.
â€œHeâ€™s a talented footballer with great impact and weâ€™re excited to have him onboard.â€
