Willie Tonga rewarded for steely resolve with a new NRL contract


Stuart paid tribute to Tonga’s resolve and professionalism over the past two years, saying the former Test flyer had “come of age”.

In a tough season, Stuart said the sight of a Tonga in the Eels dressing room, pulling on a jersey and lacing up his boots before the round 18 meeting with Penrith was “a highlight”, though he was adamant the decision to re-sign the outside back was not simply a sentimental decision.
