Leading NRL journalist Brent Read has revealed the Sea Eagles are hopeful of extending young star Tolutau Koula despite rival interest from Wallabies coach Eddie Jones and Rugby Australia.
Koula, 20, has one more season remaining on his contract, and according to Read, the Sea Eagles are working towards a new deal, with Rugby Australia also looking to make a move for the young gun.
“He’s a rugby kid… Manly are aware Eddie (Jones) is sniffing around,” Read said on Triple M’s Rush Hour.
