    In defence it has been poor, unlike in 2017. I'd say it's even worse than last year. Unfortunately last year our defence was under more pressure because we never had any ball.

    Does a 200m running Alvaro fix our defence?

    Three future NRL coaches played in that game, two of them premiership winners and the other a grand final LOOSER.

    Parramatta to hand promising centre Ethan Parry his NRL debut against Manly


    Parramatta fans are about to get a glimpse of the future with rising star Ethan Parry set to make his highly anticipated NRL debut.

    The Daily Telegraph understands Parry could start on the wing against Manly at Lottoland on Sunday with NSW Origin star Blake Ferguson in doubt.

    Ferguson has been battling a knee injury and needed to have fluid drained from it this week.

    The Eels flyer has told club officials he is confident he will be fit to play on Sunday, but the Eels are reluctant to risk him in the lead-up to the finals.

    Parry, 19, has been on the cusp of first grade for weeks as part of the extended Eels squad.

    Coach Brad Arthur named the same 17 players who beat the Wests Tigers 30-18 last weekend.

    With new signing Waqa Blake due to return from injury next week to potentially make his blue and gold debut against the New Zealand Warriors, Sunday shapes as Parry’s best chance to get a taste of first grade.

    Parry has scored five tries in 15 appearances this season for Parramatta’s feeder club, Wentworthville, who have the bye this weekend.

    Normally a centre, Parry could play there on Sunday, or be eased into first grade from the wing.

    Under NRL rules, the Eels need to reduce their extended bench on Saturday, 24 hours before the game, giving a clearer indication on whether Parry will indeed line up against the Sea Eagles.

    Parry, a Tamworth product who came through renowned rugby league nursery St Gregory’s at Campbelltown, scored a try in NSW’s 36-10 win over Queensland in the under-20s State of Origin match at ANZ Stadium last Wednesday.

    He first came to prominence in the Eels’ Harold Matthews team in 2015. Two years later he scored a hat-trick as Parramatta won the SG Ball grand final.

    His younger brother Cody, 15, is also on the Eels’ books and is considered a future first grader.

    The former Australian schoolboy has scored five tries in 15 appearances this season for Wentworthville, where he has averaged more than 100 running metres a game.

    5 tries in 15 games for Wenty. Sounds very exciting.

    That's about one try every three games.

    So if he scores one this week, it’s back to Wenty!
    And if he doesn’t score one, at least it’s 50/50 he will next week

    I’m pretty sure this mob gave us our blueprint for recruiting success:

    Step 1:
    Don’t talk to merkins

    (If that doesn’t work)

    Step 2:
    Tell them to get f**ked

    (Repeat)
