Other clubs beaten to the signing of star halfback as he signs huge contract

The Parramatta Eels have extended the contract of halfback Mitch Moses until at least the end of the 2026 season with an option for a further two years until 2028 after months of speculation and interest from other clubs.

Mitch Moses said he is excited about securing his future with the Eels.

“We have a great bunch of boys at Parramatta and I love working with Brad and our coaching staff. I’ve been an Eels supporter since I was a kid, so this feels special.”

Parramatta Eels CEO Jim Sarantinos says securing Moses’ signature long term further solidifies the squad as they continue to build for the future.

“Mitch has been an asset to our Club since he returned in 2017 and it’s great to have him locked in as a key member of our football team for the next few years.

“We’ve had a successful football team over the last four years, and with Mitch extending his time with the Club we’ve secured a core group of players for the next few years that we can complement with the best young talent coming through our Elite Pathways system to ensure we are in a great position to continue to compete for premierships well into the future,” added Jim.

Parramatta Eels General Manager of Football Mark O’Neill said, “Mitch Moses is one of the elite players in the NRL and is integral to our team’s success. He has worked hard on his game and is in career best form. As good as his recent performances have been, Mitch has his best football ahead of him and we’re all excited to see the continued evolution of his game and the team’s performances over the next few years.

“He has a beautiful young family including wonderful support from his partner Bri, and we are very happy to have them all continue to be part of the extended Eels family.”

Moses made his debut with the Eels in 2017 and has gone on to play 141 NRL matches with Parramatta. He joins an elite group of players scoring over 1000 points in his career with many more to come over the next few seasons.

The 28-year-old has also made eight appearances for Lebanon and represented New South Wales in 2021. Moses played in the Eels 2022 grand final team and won Dally M Halfback of the Year in 2019.
