The Parramatta Eels can confirm its current squad list for 2021.
The Eels have a handful of new faces to their 2021 squad with Bryce Cartwright, Keegan Hipgrave, Joey Lussick, Michael Oldfield, Tom Opacic and Isaiah Papali’i joining the Blue & Gold squad this season.
Young forwards David Hollis and Samuel Hughes have also been named in the Eels NRL squad after progressing through the Blue & Gold junior representative ranks over the last few years.
Hooker Nathaniel Roache also joins the Eels’ development squad in 2021. The 24 year old joins the Blue & Gold having played 26 games for the New Zealand Warriors previously.
With the NRL's new financial year rolling over on November 1, clubs were required to confirm at least 24 of their top 30 squads for next season. Twenty-nine players must be contracted by the start of next March, with the final roster spot to be filled by June 30 next year.
A portion of the Eels squad returned for pre-season training this week before the majority of the squad return in December and early-January.
