Fresh off scoring a try in his side’s loss to the Storm, Manly winger Jorge Taufua has made the call to stay on with the club – signing a new 2-year deal that will see remain with the club, until the end of the 2014 NRL season.
Taufua, who is just 20 years old, is pleased to have cemented a spot in the Manly back-line for this season, but is also pleased that the club has him in their long-term plans.
“I’m extremely happy to re-sign with such a strong club. Manly gave me an opportunity last year in Toyota Cup and I was stoked just being selected to train full time with such great players and great blokes.
“I’m learning all the time from the coaching staff and senior players and I’m looking forward to the rest of my time here at the Sea Eagles.”
With Taufua still young and learning the game, Manly coach Geoff Toovey says that the club see potential in him, and were pleased to have retained his services.
“We’re very excited about the prospect of working with Jorge over the next few seasons,” he said.
“He trained hard during the off season and has made the most of his opportunities so far this year. He’s a real asset to the club.”
