Manly Coach Anthony Seibold is confident Nathan Brown's experience and aggression will prove to be a valuable acquisition to the Sea Eagles.
Signed to a train and trial contract, 30-year-old Brown is looking to rejuvenate his NRL career at the Sea Eagles following stints at Wests Tigers, South Sydney, Parramatta, and the Sydney Roosters.
“Nathan brings close to 150 games of NRL experience. He played in a Grand Final for Parramatta (2022) and has played State of Origin for the Blues (2020),’’ Seibold said.
“One thing Nathan adds is extra depth to our middle forwards group.
“We've had some really good competition for spots there, so to have another player who can bring experience and talent to our group is really important.
“The other thing is ‘Browny’ has come here for the right reasons. He feels as though he has got a bit of a point to prove. We now give him that opportunity.
“Like every player here, there are no guarantees but I just know he will compete hard for a spot. It can only help improve us a group.”
