Dear Members and supporters,
Thank you for your overwhelming support at last week's Board elections. You, the Members, stood up and said enough is enough. We are all sick of the slanderous rubbish that seems to be woven around factionalism at board level, and those who promote it. These antics cause embarrassment for the club and enormous damage to our image.
I give you my commitment that your new Board will take whatever action is necessary to prevent this from re-occurring in the future.
You have elected a fantastic and talented group to guide your club forward. As Chairman, I will ensure transparency is always maintained and give my full commitment to delivering on our rebuilding of the Eels, which is already in progress.
This week we take on the New Zealand Warriors at Pirtek Stadium Saturday at 3pm. The boys have their backs to the wall and no one is more dangerous then the wounded Eels.
I hope you can make it to the game to help get the team over the line against the Warriors, to salute our charity partners, and to celebrate Women in League Round.
I hope to have some exciting news around our home stadium in the next few weeks as the government sorts out the final stadia strategy for New South Wales.
Until then: Stay strong, stay united, stay Blue and Gold.
