The Pirtek Parramatta Eels would like to re-affirm their position of support for Head of Physical Preparation & Performance Trent Elkin.


Since joining the Eels late last year, Trent has done an exceptional job preparing our team for the physical demands of the NRL. He is an integral member of the Eels Family and it is our intention that it will remain that way.


The Pirtek Parramatta Eels are not in the position to comment and will not comment on reports pertaining to what may or may not have occurred at another club in 2011.


At this time the clubs primary focus is caring for the welfare of Trent Elkin, Tim Mannah and their families.


The club will be making no further comment on this matter.
