Eels celebrate anniversary of NRLW debut

Today marks one year since the Parramatta Eels played their first NRLW Premiership match, a thrilling win over the Newcastle Knights.

The Eels made their anticipated premiership debut on February 27, 2022, in a game decided at the death.

The feat came following several disruptions and delays to the Eels' NRLW entry due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Eels have since enjoyed great success in the competition, reaching the NRLW Grand Final at the end of 2022.

The upcoming 2023 NRLW campaign will again be led by coach Dean Widders, with the support of a new-look Women's program including two female full-time staff members.

As four new teams enter an expanded NRLW competition this year, the Eels will face the Wests Tigers, Cronulla Sharks, North Queensland Cowboys and Canberra Raiders for the first time in 2023.
