Explosive young winger Jorge Taufua has re-signed with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles until the end of the 2014 season.
The versatile 20-year-old, who is already settling well into the team's talented back line, said he's grateful to be included in the Sea Eagles' plans for the future.
"I'm extremely happy to re-sign with such a strong club. Manly gave me an opportunity last year in Toyota Cup and I was stoked just being selected to train full time with such great players and great blokes.
"I'm learning all the time from the coaching staff and senior players and I'm looking forward to the rest of my time here at the Sea Eagles."
Taufua has been quick to display his talents since making his NRL debut for the Sea Eagles against the Dragons in Round 4 this year.
He raised the bar against the Storm on Monday night, with 19 runs for 230 metres, six tackle breaks and three line breaks to his name.
Sea Eagles coach Geoff Toovey sees plenty of star potential in Taufua.
"We're very excited about the prospect of working with Jorge over the next few seasons," he said.
"He trained hard during the off season and has made the most of his opportunities so far this year. He's a real asset to the club."
