Monday 20 May - Jarrdy Hayne spoke to Dean Ritchie yesterday about the issues at Parramatta. In the interview Hayne spoke of the pressure he feels as Parramatta’s marquee man as well as the trouble with the former administration whose unstable presence off the field was unsettling the team.
With Hayne showing some consistent form at the Eels, particularly with his defence, 1Eyed Eel, has suggested Hayne be used more as a decoy, allowing players like Jacob Loko and Kelepi Tanginoa to cash in on the extra space outside. I have said it before that Hayne attracts plenty of defenders when he’s near the ball and can be used very effectively as a decoy.
Former Parramatta hooker, Kevin Kingston, has been informed that his contract at Penrith will not be renewed following this season. Kingston was a key member of Parramatta’s historic run to the Grand Final in 2009, injecting energy and enthusiasm when coming off the bench. Although he isn’t a long term prospect he would be useful to mentor the younger hookers such as Parata and Pritchard.
Jimmy also informed us that 4 youngsters from Parramatta will represent New South Wales in the Under 16’s State of Origin in the curtain raiser to the first State of Origin on 5th June. Congratulations to Joseph Tramontana, Michael Doolan, Simon Fonua and Mark Griffiths, do the Blue and Gold proud boys. - Super Eel

The fallout from Israel Folau's decision to turn down the Eels and instead try his hand at Rugby League continued to be the most discussed item on 1Eyed Eel today. Most 1Eyed posters backed the club's aggressive stance towards Izzy Folau although some like Knight Rider hold the club at least as accountable.
