Having only made two appearances in his maiden season at the club, Jesse Sene-Lefao played an integral part off the interchange bench in 2014.

Sene-Lefao played in all bar one game this season, as he quickly became a mainstay in Geoff Toovey’s side.

His injection off the bench provided the Sea Eagles with extra grunt, enthusiasm and power through the middle.

His early season form justified his selection into the Samoan squad, where he made his international debut in May against Fiji.

In round 13 the hulking front rower scored his first try in the top grade before penning a new two-year deal with the club mid way through 2014.

He, along with a number of newly re-signed members of the squad, will look to lead the side to further success in the future.

“I’m really excited to be staying with the Sea Eagles for the next two years,” Sene-Lefao said after re-signing with the club.

 “Manly showed a lot of faith by brining me over here last year. They have given me the opportunity to test myself at the highest level and I’m grateful for that.”
