Sea Eagles secure young prop Aitasi James for next two years

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have secured the services of 22-year-old prop Aitasi James on a two-year deal.

The 188cm/110kg forward has played five NRL games after making his debut for the Wests Tigers against Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at CommBank Stadium in round 19 this year.

In his five appearances where he played between 20-27 minutes, James averaged 52 metres, had 98 post contact metres, averaged five hit ups, and had a tackle efficiency rate of 95 per cent.

“Aitasi played some NRL for the Tigers this year after starting there on a train and trial. He was very consistent in the NSW Cup for them,'' said Sea Eagles Coach Anthony Seibold.

“He comes highly recommended to us as a young front-rower.

“Aitasi reminds me of Junior Tatola when he came to South Sydney from the Tigers. He has a similar body shape and is a similar type of player.

“He has got that potential already. We are giving him an avenue to try and reach that potential.”
