Biography:

Sponsored by Sound Agents. Your local AV & Entertainment specialists! 2017 was a strong campaign for the Eels most experienced outside back.

The year saw Michael Jennings switch from his usual position of left centre, moving to the right edge, that saw him link midseason with new recruit Mitch Moses along with several players at right wing including Bevan French, Josh Hoffman and Kirisome Auva’a.

The experienced football crossed for 10 tries in 2017 (the third most for any Blue & Gold player this season), however he also finished with an impressive 12 line breaks, five try assists and 63 tackle breaks.

Along with strong attacking stats, Jennings proved why he is one of the best defensive centres in the game, stiffening up the Eels right edge, making 355 tackles this season.

Despite his experience, Jennings still showed he had some of the fastest feet in the game along with his trademark blistering speed that saw him streak away in the clear several times.

With close to 250 games under his belt (including careers with the Penrith Panthers and Sydney Roosters), Jennings is also a Tongan and Australian international and NSW State of Origin representative.

Jennings is signed until the end of the 2019 season.
