Parramatta Eels

Last updated: 10 March, 2017

Parramatta EelsFormed in 1947, the Parramatta Eels struggled enormously in the early history, claiming 11 wooden spoons in in their first 26 seasons. Fortunately, the club is best known for a dynasty in the 1980s that saw them claim four premierships in six seasons – although success has largely eluded them since.

Parramatta looked on track for a stellar campaign in 2016 with six wins in their first nine matches. Revelations of a salary cap breach however saw them forfeit all competition points earned and the Eels simply never recovered, with their eventual 14th place seeing the club miss finals for a seventh straight year.

Senior coach: Brad Arthur
Captains: Tim Mannah & Beau Scott
2016 finish: 14th
Premierships: 1981, 1982, 1983, 1986
