Wests Tigers are pleased to announce the re-signing of dynamic centre Esan Marsters for the coming two seasons.
The new deal will see Marsters remain at Wests Tigers until at least the end of the 2020 NRL season.
Since making his debut in Round 13, 2017, the 21 year old has taken to the field 19 times for Wests Tigers.
Marsters said that he was thrilled to be extending his stay at Wests Tigers.
“It was definitely an easy choice for me to stay at Wests Tigers,” said Marsters. “They gave me a chance to play first-grade here and I really want to pay them back by playing some good footy.
"I just enjoy being around this club, all the boys are really tight and I’ve got some of my best mates here.
"We’re all pretty close on the field and it’s really reflecting on the field.
“In saying that, I really want to play for Ivan as well. He’s stuck by me this entire time so I really want to play some good footy for him and just finish the year on a good note,” he said.
“I think all the boys are really close this year and do things for each other.
"We’re showing on the field what we can do and I’m really happy to be a part of it.
"We definitely want to keep improving and working hard as a team and that’s the most important thing.”
Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary said that he looked forward to continuing to work with Marsters over the coming seasons.
“Esan is developing into an impressive player and I look forward to working with him on the next part of his career with Wests Tigers,” said Cleary.
“In a short period of time he’s shown himself to be a very valuable member of our team and we look forward to seeing him develop further over the coming two seasons."
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe congratulated Marsters on his contract extension.
“Esan is a natural Rugby League player and we are thrilled that the club can continue to work with him to reach his full potential,” said Pascoe. “He has a bright future and we’re committed to continuing to develop him both on and off the field as we build a destination club where players and staff want to be.”
