After a tough 24-16 loss to a spirited North-Queensland Cowboys at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night, the 2017 Blue & Gold campaign has come to a close.
Despite this, we can hold our heads high after achieving our best season since 2009. We would like to take the time to thank our Members, as our team would not have achieved their on-field success this year without you.
However, our young Blue & Gold NYC side will still continue their season this weekend, after progressing straight through to Week Three of the Finals after defeating the Minor Premiers the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in Week One, meeting our western rivals, the Penrith Panthers at Allianz Stadium in an elmination clash.
The clash is the second game of a triple header at Allianz Stadium, with the NRL clash between the Sydney Roosters and North-Queensland Cowboys at 7:40pm.
Make sure you get out to Allianz Stadium to support the young Eels NYC side!
