Sheffield legend Menzie Yere signs new deal

Sheffield have confirmed that club legend Menzie Yere has signed a new one-year deal.

The 36-year-old joined the Eagles ahead of the 2009 season and has scored 190 tries in 268 appearances. He has earned 15 caps for Papua New Guinea.

Sheffield coach Mark Aston said: “He’s a legend, a champion, and when he played some of the games last year he could still handle it.

“The big thing for me is that he deserves to be honoured and granted a testimonial. There are a lot of reasons why we want to keep him and it’s good that he’ll be around the young players.

“He wants to be a one-club man. I’m sure there are plenty of clubs who have looked at him but he wanted to stay at Sheffield and finish his career with us.

“We’re delighted with that as he has been one of, if not the best overseas players Sheffield Eagles have ever had.”
