Parramatta Eels handed Dylan Brown a three-year contract extension, extinguishing rumours he could leave for an NRL rival.

Eels tie down promising talent Brown


Promising playmaker Dylan Brown has agreed a three-year contract extension that will keep him with Parramatta Eels until 2023.

Brown impressed during his debut NRL season and will reportedly play under improved terms next year before earning AUS$2million across the following three campaigns.

The 19-year-old, who represented New Zealand in the World Cup Nines in October, made 15 appearances for the Eels in 2019, contributing four tries and five assists.

Parramatta are understood to have moved to tie him down in a bid to ward off interest from a number of NRL rivals.

"The signing of Dylan Brown aligns with our development club philosophy and we're extremely proud of the person and player he has become. We're excited about the future ahead for our members and fans," said Eels general manager Mark O'Neill.
