Beau Scott will be in blue and gold next year.
The 30 year-old second-rower, who has played eight games for NSW and three for Australia, will join the Parramatta Eels on a three year deal after being granted a release by the Newcastle Knights.
“Beau is a hard-nosed forward who is well-known as one of the toughest competitors in the game. Equally, he is a quality individual and we look forward to him being a positive influence at our club on and off the field,” Parramatta Eels Chairman Steve Sharp said.
“We have a talented but young roster at the Eels, and recruiting players like Beau will add valuable playing experience and leadership to our club.”
“Finding the right balance of skill and experience is part of our club’s strategic recruitment direction, and I’m happy to see many of our objectives have been met by players we’ve both recruited and re-signed.”
Head Coach Brad Arthur said: “As an Origin and Australian player, Beau’s talent and experience on the field speaks for itself, and he will be a great leader for our younger players,”
“I’m looking forward to having Beau join our side for the next three years.”
