Dear Members and supporters,

Thank you for helping to make last Saturday evening a night to remember. With the Eels showing the quality of football they are capable of and the great atmosphere created by you, the fans, the Dragons had no answer.

After such a turbulent week of unwanted media attention our great club stood up as one and said we are Blue and Gold and we are united. This week it's the next step on the ladder when we travel to ANZ stadium to take on the Wests Tigers.

If you can make it, be there as we see the return of Manu Ma'u as our team attempt to tame the Tigers. This must-win game shapes as a tight encounter and you just may be the difference.

Off the field, the club continues to expand its commitment to the overall welfare of our players with 87% of our combined NRL and NYC playing group engaged in education or career training.

In addition to this, staff and players have undertaken workplace education in mental well-being as part of promoting the counselling and support services made available to them and their immediate family.

Thank you as always for your support. Go the Eels, and remember:

Stay strong, stay united, stay Blue and Gold.

Steve Sharp

Chairman
