Eaton commits to the ‘Naki

HURRICANES LOCK Jason Eaton has re-signed with Taranaki for two more years.

The former All Black’s new deal will see him aligned with the province until 2013.

He joins fellow second rowers Craig Clarke, James Broadhurst and Jarrad Hoeata as options for coach Colin Cooper as he sets about planning the defence of the Ranfurly Shield.

“I am wrapped to be playing for Taranaki again this year. It’s going to be a huge season for us with the Ranfurly Shield to defend. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else and I am looking forward to an awesome season working with the boys and Coops (Cooper),” says Eaton.

Eaton was named Taranaki’s player of the year last year and Cooper was pleased to have secured his services for another two seasons.

“Jason brings a great deal of experience, strong leadership and an excellent work ethic to the team. He is a talented player and we are very pleased to have him in the fold again for the coming seasons.”

Eaton has played 40 games for Taranaki since debuting for the province in 2005
