The Blue and Gold Army is invited to travel to Hunter Stadium for free this Saturday on a dedicated Hayne Train for our Round 25 clash against the Newcastle Knights!

Thanks to Sydney Trains and the NRL, there will be a free Hayne Train service running from Stathfield Station to Broadmeadow for the game.

Up to 900 Eels Members, NRL junior pass-holders and game ticket-holders will be able to ride the express service free of charge on Saturday.

The NRL action kicks off at 3pm, and the train service will return to Sydney departing from Broadmeadow at 5.30pm after the game.

We need as many of the Blue and Gold Army as possible to show up at Hunter Stadium and cheer on the boys, so jump on the Hayne Train for free to help cheer on the Eels!
