Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have extended the contract of five-eighth Jake Arthur until the end of 2025.
Arthur proved to be a strong buy for the Sea Eagles after leaving the Parramatta Eels in May.
The 20-year-old played six games for the Sea Eagles after making his club debut against the Newcastle Knights in round 13. He played the last three games at five-eighth.
Manly Coach Anthony Seibold said Arthur made the most of his opportunities.
“We have been very impressed with how Jake has immersed himself into our club with his work ethic and attitude to getting better,’’ Seibold said.
“Jake shows the Manly mentality everyday he comes into the building. He finished the season very strongly in first grade in the number six jersey.
“He has the ability to play in the halves at NRL level and gives us depth and competition for spots in that position, but we also feel he has some versatility in his game that would enable him to play in the forwards as a ball playing utility.”
