Read this one today; an excellent article in light of what has occurred at Penrith....As the man said, who’d be a coach?The moment the ink is dry on your contract signature, the countdown to your…Continue
"Interesting blog. Cannot agree with some things here; did you say this at the end of 2016? Or 2017?
Yes we had a terrible yr this season, agree on that and i cannot blame the coaching staff etc. this yr they are on notice, and no doubt about…"
"It’s the off season and parra sells newspapers too. I would like to know the terms of Wests and the Wanderers if they’ve both agreed. As for union the coat pocket brigade and red bandana man and co can sort themselves out. As Gurr said…"
"This is great for the Broncos, and I am happy they've squeezed him via the Thoroughbreds. Its a win win for the NRL and the Broncs will now squeeze the rest in. Its good to see players playing for less $$$$ with a struggling NRL club."
"Yes that would make sense James; you have to applaud the club for this as supporters get screwed on things such as food etc. and I know they can only do so much but at times its pathetic. Our season tkts went up 50% and we have elected to sit…"
"Good work Parra and I am glad Wanderers are of the same view. This is a joke and as I understand this group is a subsidiary from the Govt. I also heard the NRL are in agreement with Parra about this.
These people need to be outed for the ridiculous…"
"Smart man Brett ; and spot on. Des would be the man. I also think Manly know this may bring some stability in their squad and possible back ended deals as Des loves!! DCE wont be going anywhere. $1 Mill / season? Not surer he’s worth that at…"

Favourite Eels Moment/s
And Dean Pay, Dymock, Smith and McCracken era!!
Hayne was brilliant but needed more firepower up front.
Do/have you play footy (If so for who, when, position, etc)?
Played club, school football. Now manage / coach at school and regional teams for Sydney North. Good fun and get to see some brilliant kids come through and some who make NYC/ first garde years later. Recall coaching Jennings and Beale at district level- a cut above rest, and also Austin at school level. Coached against him and he was a fierce competitor and tough.
What changes would you make if you were Eels coach
Ensure strong u/20s players get first grade exposure; and buy a strong prop and half to accompany Hayne
What changes would you make if you were Eels CEO?
Hmmmmm- good club governance; foster juniors with good mix of experienced players, and D. Anderson- that is the worst thing done to the club in a long time. But BA has been a great move by the club.
Favourite music/movies/tv shows:
Seinfeld, Spooks,the office UK, The Game
