    I think we missed a trick not keeping Doorey. Imagine Salmon and Doorey together. Oh the puns we could have. Would probably drive Hindy111 mad.

    So making more total metres can indicate we are running better but probably is more an indication we have more possession. Less penalties and errors.

    I reckon the tell8ng stat is vastly more assists .... working better as a team

    We are getting penalised less, however not so much the other teams. Means that we must have good ruck speed and they are trying to slow us down. Prolly on the back of our 1, 2, 3 tackles each set.

    Parramatta Eels insist player retention policy is world-class
    APRIL 12, 2019Parramatta picked the eyes out of rival clubs and codes before arriving at the retention and recruitment policy that now has some questioning whether they have lost their way.

    Chair Sean McElduff spoke at length with Melbourne Storm head of football Frank Ponissi. They looked at the Sydney Swans and Richmond.

    They did their homework, hence the patient approach they have taken with their players and coach Brad Arthur over the opening weeks of the NRL season.

    As the Eels prepare to table a new contract offer to Clint Gutherson next week — their hope that they can secure a deal with their captain leading into their first game at Bankwest Stadium — McElduff insists the club’s approach is in line with the process adopted by the best sporting clubs in the land.

    “As part of the football review we looked at what everybody else did and we looked at what we did, and we thought we could improve,” McElduff said.

    “The research that is going into new players is significant. No-one gets in the joint unless Brad and (head of football) Mark O’Neill (say okay).

    “We picked the eyes out of what the best clubs do. We talked to the Storm — I talked to Frank and said tell me how you do it.

    “We did have great insights into a number of AFL clubs. And we had insights into a couple of other rugby league clubs.”

    The Eels’ extensive leg work hasn’t spared them from criticism, most of it has surrounded their handling of Gutherson and Arthur, the captain and coach who have been instrumental in their outstanding start to the year.

    Parramatta spoke to Gutherson’s manager today and nothing would make the club happier than to make an announcement on the week they return to their home ground

    “I have no concerns about what other people say,” McElduff said.

    “The club is working this matter through with his manager. Sometimes people don’t agree on terms but in terms of intent, there is nothing more than we want than to have Gutho at the club.

    “He is our fullback, he is our captain and what he does on the field reflects what he does off the field. I am pretty sure he wants to be at the club too.”

    As for Arthur, the club has put contract talks on hold until June, although McElduff says that can and most likely will be revisited if they maintain their current form.

    The irony is that a couple of losses would make them shut up. f**k those merkins. I hope we keep winning and they scream their tits off.

    Maybe we should win another game or 2 before going on the draw run, just to ensure top 4
