    When's the last time a coach got sacked with his team in the top four? Or even the top eight?

    Yeah forgot about him. I assumed that was about paying the Cleary family outside the salary cap.

    Whilst the EPL don’t have a salary cap they still use squad rotation to manage performance. In cup competitions it is not unusual for al 11 starting players to be rested.
    The EPL is probably not a good example as the can play between 50 - 60 compatible games a year and it is clear rotation is required. The point is though NRL sides that have managed to rest and rejuvenate players before the finals will perform better come finals. Whether it be through good management or good luck Storm and Roosters will have successfully rotated players.

    I fancy Moses having a big game today. He hasn’t been at his best since his return from a calf injury but now will assume the lead half role.

    Anthony Griffin at Panthers, they were 4th weren't they. Gus Gould at his best.

    Not up to date with the comings and goings of assistance coaches Poo but there is usually a fair turn around.

    Griffen is a bum, having friends in the media is the only reason he is looking at a third chance.

    Doesn’t look like this was posted by anyone. FFS.


    Mark O’Neill, who was appointed Parramatta’s general manager of football following the review, said giving debuts to players such as Reed Mahoney, Dylan Brown and Oregon Kaufusi was proof the Western Sydney powerhouse was making quick headway in rectifying the situation.

    “The findings were there was a gap there,” O’Neill said.

    “We have to be more diligent but in more recent years we’ve been able to debut Dylan Brown, Oregon Kaufusi, Reed Mahoney and Stefano Utoikamanu, and Haze Dunster debuted at the Nines.

    “We’ve got others like Sam Hughes, Dave Hollis and William Penisini from our pathways, they’re all locked up.

    “There are a few we have taken serious notice of in the last 18 months and look to give them their opportunity. If they are good enough we want them to play at our club.

    “That’s what we are trying to do. We have a lot of talent out here and retaining them all is a challenge, but we need to be more sophisticated in keeping the right kids.”

    O’Neill said Eels fans could look forward to players such as Ryan Matterson and Utoikamanu being retained, rather than Parramatta developing them and watching other clubs reap the benefits.

    Utoikamanu is headed to Concord next season after making his NRL debut this year and Matterson made his debut for the Sydney Roosters despite being an Eels junior.

    “A player adds value to a club but we have to challenge ourselves to add value to the player as well,” O’Neill said.

    “By that I mean the work we do to improve their skills as footballers and making sure they have the technical, tactical and physical knowledge of the game … the things that show we can improve them as a player to make them stay.

    “We have a good crop of kids coming through under the current NRL batch and we are confident they want to stay and develop as players at the Eels.”
