What should we expect of a Ricky Stuart-led Eels?

Well, firstly obviously I'm hoping this will finally mean Hayne to six. My hope is that Stuart's experience as a half can get Hayne to make a rapid transition into the halves and I will to my dying day say that Kearney's biggest mistake was not keeping Hayne in the halves once he got him to place a few games there. I can hop back onto my unicorn on this basis alone.

The half back spot will be interesting. Can Stuart transform Sandow. Sandow may very well have the rest of this season to show Stuart he's got the potential to grow into the kind of half-back Ricky Stuart's likes running his teams. Because I think Luke Kelly is much more like a Stuart-style of half back.

I think if he reproduces his liking for a mobile forward pack that will suit us. We've never played the power game very well - and we don't seem to produce really big forwards. But I think he'll definitely want more aggression from our forwards, and that might be a challenging thing for him to try and achieve.

I actually think Stuart will be a decent fit if he has possibly learned from his past NRL coaching jobs that he probably has to tone down the intensity. I've always admired his willingness to innovate and try and take the game in new directions and I think Parramatta is a great club to do that at, because as we have shown the last couple of years we don't fit very well with the type of game played by many of the other clubs.

maybe stuart will be the bloke to take sandow to the next level, if ricky can articulate n relate to chris in the right way, we might see a new man in sandow, with a new level of confidence n a new out look on his role in the game, i can only hope this is the case.

Bye bye luke Kelly??? Kelly will be a permanent 6 or 7 in our team for years

The Fong said it was a doomed venture the day we hired Stuart , very few have the Fong's impeccable record predicting things .

The fong has the best strike rate on this site, light years in front of the unicorns.


Thats Col on his way to Poppas nursing home.


Poppa, hope you didnt mind your picture going up even if its against the COC.

OMG Ricky Stuart is gonna coach us? Hey what the bet we get the spoon if he's coaching us...wait a sec...didn't Pricky coach us somewhere along the line or was that a nightmare?

It's alright Monster - go back to sleep - the nightmare won't be back to scare you.
