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. 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.

Captains: Tim Mannah
2017 finish: 5th (4th before finals)
