Parramatta have continued their string of recent signings by locking in Manly forward Siosaia Vave on a two-year deal.
“I am pleased that Siosaia will be joining our squad as he brings experience and power to our front row,” coach Brad Arthur said on Sunday.
“As we continue to build towards 2017, it’s important that our acquisitions complement the current strength within our playing squad and I am confident that Siosaia will do this from day one.”
The trimmed-down Vave has impressed for the Sea Eagles this year.
He has played 75 NRL games for Manly, Cronulla and Melbourne.
The 27-year-old’s move to the Eels for 2017-18 comes after the club’s re-signings of Corey Norman, Danny Wicks, Kenny Edwards and Isaac De Gois.
