Eagles secure Naitanui signature

Eagles big man Nic Naitanui has re-signed with the club for a further three seasons.

Naitanui returned to the field on Saturday for the Eagles WAFL side, playing limited minutes and is expected to head straight into the AFL side against the Hawks next weekend.

He had 10-possessions and three marks in his return game.

The 29-year-old said it was a comfort to have the contract completed. 

“My management team has been negotiating the contract extension behind the scenes while I have been entirely focused on my return.

“I knew that was going on in the background, but for me it has been more about getting back to play footy. It’s really exciting."
