Dear Members and supporters,

After two heart-breaking losses against the Warriors and the Rabbitohs, the Eels finally secured the breakthrough win we've been searching for against the Panthers. A brilliant start to the game showed the fans just what the Eels are capable of when they're on.

The team showed great composure after the Panthers levelled the scores early in the second half, eventually getting home 26-20 to keep the season alive.

During the week the Eels went into camp on the Central Coast, and the atmosphere and environment around the team was electric.

This week we are back at Pirtek Stadium on the public holiday Monday against the Cowboys; The Queenslanders are looking for ten-in-a-row and the Eels are hungry for another victory.

Last week it was fantastic to see so many Eels fans at Penrith, so let's get to Parramatta this week and cheer the boys on! Kick off is 7.00 pm.

Have a great long weekend and remember:

Stay strong, stay united, stay Blue and Gold.

Steve Sharp

Chairman
