Parramatta to offer Hayne new Eels deal
August 15, 2018 6:54 pm
Fiji Bati star Jarryd Hayne will be offered a contract by Parramatta for next season after recently informing him of their desire to keep him at the club.
NRL.com reports, the Eels and Hayne had agreed to hold off discussions until after the season however Hayne’s irresistible form over the past two months has already convinced the club he can add value in 2019.
According to the reports, Hayne, who is off contract at the end of the year, has not put pen to paper however the club is confident of retaining his services despite a possible lure to chase a spot in Fiji’s squad for next year’s rugby union World Cup.
Hayne is yet to decide whether he wants to continue playing in the NRL, however the Eels are hoping the lure of a new stadium and the chance to lead the club back to the finals will convince him to remain.
The 30-year-old has scored nine tries in eight games — including a hat-trick last weekend against the Dragons — and has been a major reason the Eels have claimed three wins from their last four fixtures to pick themselves up off the bottom of the ladder.
Eels will meet Storm at 9.50pm tomorrow and you can watch the match live on FBC TV.
In tonight’s matches, Broncos meets Rabbitohs at 9.50pm and you can watch the delay coverage of the match on FBC TV at 11.50pm tomorrow.
