It’s all about retaining the youngsters and your juniors, and the Parramatta Eels have acted
swiftly in that department to re-sign three core, young players.
That trio are Daniel Alvaro and Kaysa Pritchard (both re-signed until the end of 2018) and Alex Twal (until the end of 2017).
Alvaro, a young forward who made an impression on fans and on coach Brad Arthur in 2015, will get a chance to cement a first-grade spot moving forward.
Pritchard, predominantly a hooker, has had his issues with injury in recent years but in the time he has played, has proven his worth as a player.
As for Twal, the youngest of the trio, he is yet to play an NRL game but has impressed in the Holden Cup in recent years.
â€œThe thing you notice immediately about Daniel, Alex and Kaysa is their attitude and dedication to their training and preparation,â€ Head Coach Brad Arthur said.
â€œTheyâ€™re talented footballers, but they’re also quality people to have around the club, and thatâ€™s what weâ€™re looking for. Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing them continue to learn from the leaders in the team and progress this season.”
