Young Eels trio sign new deal with the club

Daniel Alvaro

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.

“The thing you notice immediately about Daniel, Alex and Kaysa is their attitude and dedication to their training and preparation,” Head Coach Brad Arthur said.

“They’re talented footballers, but they’re also quality people to have around the club, and that’s what we’re looking for. I’m looking forward to seeing them continue to learn from the leaders in the team and progress this season.”
