Kite and Watmough re-signed with the Sea Eagles, Hicks to the Wolves 21/06/2007 By Manly Sea Eagles The Manly Sea Eagles today re-signed in form forwards Brent Kite and Anthony Watmough to long term contracts. State of Origin and Test front rower Kite, who had an option for the 2008 season, has signed until the end of the 2011 season. The 26 year old is in his third season with Manly and in career best form. Kite is a Canberra junior and joined Manly from St.George Illawarra in 2005. Watmough is a Sea Eagles junior from the Narrabeen Sharks and will turn 24 next month. His new three year contract will take him through to the end of the 2010 season. He played his 100th first grade game for the club recently and said today he wants to be a one club player. "I'm a Manly boy and don't ever want to play against the club. I have admired the way Steve Menzies has remained loyal and I would love to follow his example. I'm here now until the end of 2010 and hopefully for a few years after that. "The club is on the up and I want to win a premiership with my mates this year", Watmough said. Kite said he was delighted to remain a Sea Eagle. "It's a great place to live and a wonderful club. My appearances in representative football are evidence that I am being coached well and play for a strong club. Like the rest of the team I want a premiership,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â Kite said. Manly CEO Grant Mayer said the signing of Kite and Watmough was a great lift for the club as it entered the second half of the 2007 premiership as joint leaders. "The 2007 premiership is our immediate goal but we have looked to the future strongly with the signing of Kite and Watmough. "They are ideal players to have long term as they are young but experienced and tried at the highest level. Together with the recent signing of backrower Glenn Stewart we have the basis of a strong pack going forward", Mr.Mayer said. In other player movement at the Sea Eagles today winger Chris Hicks confirmed his two year signing with English Super League Club Warrington. The 30 year old winger said he was reluctant to leave the Sea Eagles at the end of the season. "It is in reality the last contract I will probably receive and I am devastated to be leaving a club like Manly but I couldn't knock back the offer. And while I am excited at joining the Wolves I am determined to win a premiership ring with my mates come September. "I have only been at Manly for four seasons but I am proud to say they are my club and I want to return to live here,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â Hicks said.
