Daniel Tupou & Brendan Elliot re-sign with Roosters
The Sydney Roosters are pleased to announce that Daniel Tupou and Brendan Elliot have signed extensions for a further two years, keeping them at the club until the end of 2017.
24 year-old Tupou expressed his delight at extending his tenure with the Foundation Club.
“I’m so happy that I’ll continue to be part of the team here at the Roosters,” said Tupou.
“The Club means so much to me and I’m looking forward to continuing to work hard with Robbo and my teammates to keep improving and do my job for the side,” he added.
Since making his NRL debut with the Sydney Roosters in 2012, the towering winger has scored 41 tries in 66 appearances to date. He also represented Tonga at the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, has played four games for New South Wales (2014-15) and represented Australia in the Four Nations and PM’s XIII (2014).
21 year-old Elliot, who joined the Roosters as a 17 year-old, was named in the NYC Team of the Year and was a member of Queensland’s Under 20s side in 2014. The outside utility back has scored four tries in his five NRL appearances to date.
“I’m really excited to know that I’ll continue to be a part of the Roosters family for a further two seasons,” said Elliot.
“I still have lots of room to improve and I just want to keep learning from Robbo and the team and hopefully secure my opportunity to play some good football for the Club,” he added.
“In their own right, Daniel and Brendan are terrific contributors to the Roosters both on and off the field,” said Sydney Roosters Chief Operating Officer Football, Brian Canavan.
“Their best football is still ahead of them, and its great news for the Roosters to have secured their services for a further two years,” he added.
