Parramatta Eels

Parramatta EelsHaving been formed in 1947, the Parramatta Eels hit their golden period in Australian Rugby League during the 1980’s which saw them make five Grand Finals in six seasons for four Premiership victories. Recent times however have seen the Eels underachieve in the NRL, highlighted by their Premiership failure in 2001, when many considered them certainties for the NRL title.

In 2014 the Eels finished the regular season in tenth place and consequently failed to progress to the NRL finals.
