The Sea Eagles have extended back-rower Ben Trbojevic for a further three years, through to the end of the 2027 season.
Since making his debut in 2021, the 22-year-old has played 26 games for Manly after coming through the Sea Eagles Pathways Program.
After capping 12 first-grade games last season, Manly coach Anthony Seibold said Trbojevic is pushing for a starting spot in 2024.
“Ben has already made further strides forward this pre-season. He is pushing for a starting position as it stands,’’ Seibold said.
“We want to reward Ben not only for the improvement in him but also where we think he can go to over the next three years.
“By extending Ben out for a further three years, it means we have got guys like him, Tolu Koula, Haumole Olakauátu, Taniela Paseka, Josh Schuster, as well as Jake and Tom Trbojevic, all here for the next period of time.”
