Parramatta Eels Extend Four Players

Parramatta Eels extend four player contracts

 

The Parramatta Eels have extended the contract of Wiremu Greig for the 2023 season, while Makahesi Makatoa, Ky Rodwell and Ofahiki Ogden have extended their contracts until the end of 2024 season.

Parramatta Eels General Manager of Football Mark O’Neill said, “We’re really happy to have these four men be part of our team, they have shown their commitment to the Eels through solid efforts in pre-season training.

“All four players have their best football ahead of them and we believe that with our coaching, and in our Eels environment, we will see this occur.

 

“The quality and depth up front with our middle forwards will not only provide competition for spots, but also ensure we are well covered in case of any interruptions throughout the year due to Covid.”

Wiremu, Makahesi and Ky all made their debut with the Eels last season. At just 22 years of age Wiremu was selected in the New Zealand Māori’s All Stars team earlier this year, while Makahesi, a Cook Island international representative made his NRL debut in 2021 and will continue to build upon his powerful form last season.

Ky also made his NRL debut in Round 25 last season where he broke his hand early in the match but continued to play. All three players add great depth and power to the team.

Ofahiki initially joined the club on a train and trial basis in November 2021 and has been upgraded to a development contract for season 2022 and extended as part of the NRL squad until the 2024 season following an impressive pre-season with the NRL squad.
