Eels retain
boom centre


Parramatta has received a massive boost ahead of tonight's NRL clash with Wests Tigers with the re-signing of four key players for a further two years.

Boom centre Ben Smith, cult hero Fui Fui Moi Moi, back-rower Chad Robinson and exciting youngster Jarryd Hayne have all agreed to new deals with the club. Smith, who was expected to generate much interest from rival NRL clubs on the open market, says he's delighted to have his future settled.

Smith is currently sidelined with an ankle injury which is expected to keep him out for another three weeks, while Moi Moi returns from suspension for his first game of the season against the Tigers.
