Parramatta utility Will Smith has extended his contract for another season.

The 25-year-old joined the Eels this season after three seasons with Penrith where he made his NRL debut.

Having filled a role in the halves and hooker, Smith’s extension was signed off on some weeks ago and is now contracted until the end of 2018.

Market Watch can also confirm the Eels have taken up an option in their favour on Nathan Davis for 2018.

The centre rejoined the club earlier in the year from the Gold Coast.

Davis made his NRL debut at the Titans last year but was granted an early release from his contract to return to his junior club.

One word, IGNORE!

Only a 12 month extension for Smith.

Not too sure I am happy with only a 1 year extension, he has been going quite well for us.

You are shitting me mannah re-signed whhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyy? It makes no sense.

Why would you announce any of these signings???? Honestly they are depth players at best.

More moneyball rubbish that is getting us nowhere,

Gees, you are so negative Alan.  Are you actually an Eels supporter?  We signed the Fog mate. Where have you been?

They are all back up players at best, have a look at the Storm back ups Saturday night they shit all over ours.

Terepo is a plodder, but people on here talk him up like he is some origin rep.  Smith has done a solid job nothing more and Nathan Davis proved he's an average back up at bestl. 

Sorry for telling the truth.

I agree with you Alan. I was having a poke mate.

Yeah but realistically what are you looking for?

That's what the roster needs right now it needs those 2nd tier fill in guy's as they have released a few the other day.

Also it sounds like your looking for a marquee type signing which probably is a bit unrealistic to expect at the time.
Moneyball has us in the finals for the first time in 8 years after years of paying overs for superstars.

Fair point.

Could of signed Gutho on a longer deal!

Clubs need to also consider the fact that they now have to have 30 players in the top squad for next year's salary cap as opposed to 25.

I guess you will start to see clubs offloading more players that have been signed for overs to ensure they can meet the headcount.
