It sounds like injured Sea Eagles winger Jorge Taufua is keeping himself busy, with Fox Sports reporting that he’s in talks for an extension.
“We’ve been talking to Jorge for a while now, so hopefully that can get resolved,” said Sea Eagles coach Trent Barrett. “Certainly the injury won’t affect that.”
“Jorge is only 25 and doing very well.”
It’s an unfortunate time to suffer an ACL injury, in a contract year, so Taufua would likely be best served to sign a short-term deal, and pursue a bigger day down the track.
Taufua has played 112 matches for Manly, and 4 Tests for Tonga.
He’s #31 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
