Parramatta Eels 2018

Post by LP Raider » January 29, 2018, 10:02 pm

Hayne came last in the Eels fitness test up at Soldiers beach, reported by NRL 360.

Brad Arthur participated and so did his 13 year old son, in all honesty talent only gets you so far.

I've watched some of the re-runs of Origins and Hayne has deadset single handedly cost NSW games with his dumb errors. Eels really have a dud stud on their hands.

Tbf to Hayne, Brad Arthur came in the top 10 and his sons are Parramatta juniors. Plus Semi always came last or near last in those and BA said he was satisfied with how Hayne’s been going

See now, on the face of it it sounds like that’s in Hayne’s favour. But actually it just means that Hayne was still last when most of his competition was also not fit enough to beat the coach. So now he’s last in a weaker field Image

He’ll come good... Brad Arthur will get plenty out of quality football out of Jarryd Hayne

Some people just don’t have a big motor and it has been said a million times that Hayne is not a good trainer. I know I can get flogged in fitness and yet still play better touch footy than a lot of the same people.

Parramatta forward Nathan Brown re-signs with Eels on long-term deal

Post by Goobeeful » March 1, 2018, 12:59 pm

The evolution of Nathan Brown at the Parramatta Eels has seen the reigning Ken Thornett Medallist awarded with a new three-year contract extension, locking him up at the Eels until the end of 2021.
Brown, 25, emerged as one of the buys of the year in 2017, with Brad Arthur developing the former Wests Tigers and South Sydney discard into one of the NRL’s most consistent middle forwards.

After months of negotiations, Brown has agreed to terms on a contract extension which will see him remain at the Eels for the next four seasons.

Boy, you cling to that don’t you? You’re wrong about almost every rugby league opinion you’ve ever had, but you’ll cling to the fact I wanted Josh McCrone moved out of the halves into hooker until your last breath, won’t you??

Fantastic stuff

In the history of internet sporting forums I’ve never seen a more ridiculous bandwagon that yours for Josh McCrone. So yes, of course it will keep being referrered to, it goes down in folklore.

And you’re now claiming all it was, was merely wanting him moved to hooker lol

And I’ll take a statement about being wrong about everything rugby league as proof I’m on decent track, when it comes from someone like you. Especially when you attempt to call out a bad prediction 6 rounds into a season.

A guy that confesses to changing his opinion on a weekly basis.

EDIT mate, you’re good at it.

Bevan French not named for Parra this weekend.

Maybe he did actually catch cold on that wing in Canberra last week.

No chance, with his form last week he would have even dropped that.
