Clean sweep for Eels juniors at trials

Three of the Eels junior grades showed they're a force to be reckoned with, after a clean sweep in their second and last week of trials.

The Harold Matthews and SG Ball made the trip out to Windsor for their matches against the Penrith Panthers.

Both games turned out to be the usual pre-season derby hit out both squads were looking for.

While the Panthers were the first to score in both grades, the boys found their feet in the heat and upped the intensity to play some entertaining footy.

There was just a converted try in both games, with the Blue and Gold coming away with the win in the Harold Matthews and SG Ball.

The teams performances will give coaches selection headaches ahead of Round One.

Both teams will play against another traditional rival in the Manly Sea Eagles.

The Tarsha Gale girls fought back in their match to make it two from two in their trials; this time getting on top of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

The girls let the Bulldogs run away to an early 12-nil lead, before fighting their way back into the game.

Defence ended up winning the girls the game, as they piled on 16 points and conceded no more after their 12 point deficit.

The win gives the Tarsha Gale squad a lot of confidence going into Round One against the Wests Tigers.

All three grades are showing plenty of positive signs ahead of the season kick-off on 6th February.
