Pirtek Parramatta Eels re-sign Horo and Grothe
The Pirtek Parramatta Eels have received a boost on the eve of their clash with the South Sydney Rabbitohs after today re-signing forward Justin Horo and winger Eric Grothe.
Horo, who made his NRL debut with the Eels this season after captaining Wentworthville in the NSW Cup last year, has signed for three more years, while Grothe has signed for the 2011 season.
Horo, 23, has impressed from the bench in 2010, playing 20 games and scoring three tries so far. While Grothe's season has been hampered by a knee injury, the 30-year-old is feeling stronger than ever after undergoing surgery earlier this year.
Both players carry on a family tradition, as their respective fathers Mark Horo and Eric Grothe Sr are former Parramatta Eels players.
