Sea Eagles re-sign winger Jorge Taufua

Oct 4, 2017 - 12:01 PM Manly have re-signed winger Jorge Taufua for the next two seasons.

The hard-running winger had been in fine form for the Sea Eagles in 2017 until suffering an ACL injury in the round 13 win over Canberra Raiders at Lottoland.

He had scored eight tries in 12 matches.

The new deal keeps the 25-year-old on the Northern Beaches until the end of the 2019 season.

"(Coach) Trent Barrett told me when the injury happened not to worry about my future as he would be looking to keep me, and to just focus on the rehab. It put my mind at ease a little bit," Taufua said.

"I'm very grateful for the faith and the support Trent and the Sea Eagles have shown in me. It was a massive relief when the deal was finalised. I love playing for Manly."

Taufua has played 113 matches for the Sea Eagles since making his NRL and club debut against St George-Illawarra in 2012.
