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

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
