Parramatta Eels

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

In 2015 the Eels finished the regular season in 12th place and consequently failed to progress to the NRL finals.

A salary cap breach was discovered by the NRL and the club was subsequently fined and deducted 12 competition points.

The club never recovered and finished 14th in the league, but not before fresh allegations regarding more match-fixing threatened to derail their season even further.
