Proud local junior Brad Parker is on his way to reaching 10 years at his beloved Manly Warringah Sea Eagles after signing a new contract.
A Manly Christian Brothers junior who rose through the Sea Eagles Pathways, Parker has signed on for two more years until the end of 2025.
Parker made his NRL debut for Manly against the Warriors in Perth in 2016. He has since gone to score 29 tries in 117 games.
A hard-working centre, Parker has become a respected and popular clubman for his professionalism, dependability and determination to succeed.
Sea Eagles Coach Anthony Seibold said 26-year-old Parker deserved his new contract.
“The thing I like about Brad is his toughness and his consistency,’’ Seibold said.
“The way he plays, he is the best advertisement for that Manly mentality we talk about.
“We are looking at playing Brad as a bit more of a utility player. We think that he can play back-row and centre.
“Brad is just a tough competitor and a good defender. You just know what you are going to get from him.”
