Sea Eagles extend Josh Schuster to end of 2027

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have today confirmed a three-year extension for the very talented Josh Schuster.

Off contract at the end of next year, Schuster will continue his NRL career at the Sea Eagles until the end of the 2027 season.

The 22-year-old has played 43 matches for the Sea Eagles since his NRL debut for Manly in 2020.

Manly Coach Anthony Seibold said Schuster has a strong passion for the club, having come through the Sea Eagles Pathways Academy since the age of 14.

“Josh has shown his commitment to playing his best football in a Sea Eagles jersey by signing long term for our club on less financial terms than he could of got elsewhere and for less than his current contract,’’ Seibold said.

“I think this shows his commitment to his team-mates and club.

“His best football is in front of him and we look forward to developing Josh into a consistent, high performing NRL player.”

Schuster said he was very settled at the Sea Eagles.


I know there will always be media speculation about what players are paid but the fact is I am staying here for less than I was offered elsewhere and less than my current deal which was due to expire in 2024

"The reason is that I want to be a part of a successful Manly team going forward, and I have bought into what 'Seibs' is trying to do at the Club now and beyond.

"I think he is being inventive, and he has an obvious plan to forge a team that goes beyond just numbers on players' backs.

"There is a good opportunity for me to keep learning off great role models like Daly Cherry-Evans, and Jake and Tom Trbojevic."

The re-signing of Schuster follows on from the three-year extension of exciting young centre Tolu Koula from the end of the 2024 season.

The Sea Eagles also announced on Monday the signing of half-back Luke Brooks for four years, winger Jaxson Paulo for three years, and centre Tommy Talau for two years.
