Tim Mannah (born 15 February 1988) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer and Lebanese international currently playing for the Parramatta Eels in the National Rugby League (NRL).[3][4] A New South Wales State of Origin front row forward, he has played his entire NRL career to date with Parramatta, attaining the club's captaincy.

Playing career[edit]

In round 1 of the 2009 NRL season, Mannah made his NRL premiership debut for Parramatta Eels against the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium.[5] His brother, Jon Mannah, played for the Sharks from between 2009 and 2011.[6] Mannah came to be regarded by many as a potential future leader of the Parramatta side[7][8]

In 2010, Mannah played for both the City team and the New South Wales State of Origin team as a substitute. In 2011, Mannah played again for City and all three State of Origin games for New South Wales. In the final two games of the series Mannah started both and was actually one of only 2 prop forwards playing for New South Wales after coach, Ricky Stuart opted for a faster, more mobile pack and played second-rowers in the prop forward position. At the end of the 2011 season, Mannah was selected by Julia Gillard to join the Prime Minister's XIII for their annual clash with the PNG Kumuls.

For the 2013 and 2014 NRL seasons, Mannah co-captained the NRL side along with fullback Jarryd Hayne. After Hayne defected to the NFL, he became the stand-alone captain in 2015.

At the end of the 2016 season, Mannah re-signed with the Parramatta Eels, keeping him at the club until the end of 2019.[9]
