The Parramatta Eels have moved swiftly to secure two next generation talents with both Will Penisini and David Hollis both re-signing until 2023.
Penisini, who came through the Eels pathway system was recently promoted to the Eels top 30.
Eels General Manager of Football Mark O’Neill out that down to Penisini’s hard work and commitment to his craft and the game.
“Will has worked hard throughout the pre-season and his attitude has transitioned to the early part of the season with some impressive performances,” said O’Neill
”Currently studying business management, Will is another player who has developed through the pathways program and we look forward to watching him progress to NRL.”
Hollis, who has also worked his way through the Eels pathway is in a good position in terms of his development.
Able to learn off the likes of Junior Paulo and Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Hollis is not short on mentors.
“David’s development is progressing well under the current coaching model and he has a wonderful opportunity to further develop his game, learning from representative players in Junior Paulo and Reagan Campbell-Gillard, which will set him up for future success,” O’Neill continued.
“In addition, he has recently completed his diesel mechanic apprenticeship which is testament to his work ethic and commitment.”
