It was a big week for the Parramatta Eels who returned to their home away from home, the Northern Territory last week.
Returning to #eelsterritory as part of the Blue & Gold's annual pre-season trip, we hosted coaching and skills clinics through Alice Springs, as well as business networking events, community visits, educational programs with NT coaches, signing sessions and a community BBQ plus three open training sessions!
The schools the Blue & Gold visited were the Ltyentye Apurte Catholic School (Santa Teresa), Braitling PS, Araluen Christian School, Bradshaw PS, Gillen PS, Living Waters Lutheran, Alice Springs School of the Air, Sadadeen PS, Owen Springs Educational Centre - Juvenile Detention, Ross Park PS and Yirara College.
Check out the highlights of the week in the video above!
During the 2018 season, the Blue & Gold will return to the Northern Territory to face the North Queensland Cowboys in Darwin’s TIO Stadium on Saturday 9 June in Round 14 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
