The Kaspersky Manly Warringah Sea Eagles recently secured the services of three promising players in Blake Leary, Brayden Wiliame and Zane Tetavano.
Each of these three have tasted life in the top grade and will report to the Club’s northern beaches base in early November with high-hopes of adding to that experience next season.
Leary, a local by birth [Mona Vale], moved to the Gold Coast at the age of one, before he began playing his junior football with the Nerang Roosters and Keebra Park High School.
He spent two seasons with the Melbourne Storm under-20s in 2009 and 2010, before he signed with the North Queensland Cowboys the following season.
He played two NRL games for the Cowboys between 2012 and 2013 before being released to the Pride on a full-time basis for the 2014 season.
His form for the Cairns based outfit was rewarded when he was selected in the Queensland Residents side in July. His performances caught the eye of Sea Eagles Recruitment Manager Dave Warwick who snapped up the hard-working, edge-back rower until the end of 2016.
Sea Eagles members and supporters can get a glimpse of the skilful back-rower this weekend when he lines up against Penrith in the inaugural NRL State Grand Final on Sunday at ANZ Stadium.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Brayden Wiliame joins the Kaspersky Sea Eagles from the Newcastle Knights, having previously played six games of NRL while at the Parramatta Eels in 2013.
The versatile back with vision and pace, penned a two-year deal with the club late last week.
Lastly, Zane Tetevano joins the Sea Eagles on a one-year deal, off the back of a strong finish to the NSW Cup season with the Wyong Roos.
The 23-year-old forward played 29 matches for the Newcastle Knights between 2011-2014 and played for the Cook Islands at the 2013 Rugby League World Cup in England and Wales late last year.
