Parramatta's Mannah loses cancer battle
09:00 AEST Fri Jan 18 2013

Parramatta NRL player Jon Mannah has died after a long battle with cancer.

The 23-year-old younger brother of NSW State of Origin prop Tim Mannah was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2009.

Jon Mannah played 24 games for Cronulla before linking with his brother at the Eels.

But he had a recent relapse for which he underwent chemotherapy, ending his chances of playing top-level football again.

The Parramatta club issued a statement via Twitter.

"The Parramatta Eels send their heartfelt condolences to the Mannah family after the passing of 23 year old Jon overnight. Such a sad loss."

Mannah's death prompted an outpouring of support from the rugby league community on Twitter.

"Thinking of u Timmy and the whole Mannah family Johnny was an absolute gentleman it was a pleasure to know him. Best wishes," NSW Origin and Cronulla captain Paul Gallen tweeted.

Sydney Roosters five-eighth James Maloney tweeted: "Tragic news hearing about the passing of Jon Mannah. Thoughts and prayers with @tim_mannah and his family."

NSW Origin and Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah, who lost his mother to cancer last year, also paid his respects to the Mannah family.

"So sad to hear about the tragic passing of Jon Mannah. Prayers and thoughts are with the whole Mannah family. Life can be so cruel," Farah tweeted.
