Parramatta Eels

Parramatta EelsFormed in 1947, the Parramatta Eels struggled enormously in the early history, claiming 11 wooden spoons in in their first 26 seasons.

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.
