JA did quite well. I hope he gets some opportunities for the Eels going forward. I've never been a fan of employing friends or family but I'm happy to see how this progresses.

I’ve got a social media page for all things rugby league, and here’s how I summed up the trial game...

FULL TIME
Eels 28 Dragons 6

In a match that was dominated by defense early on, the Dragons dominated field position for much of the first 20 minute period, however lacking the creativity to score points from it.
Parra came out in the second 20 of the first half and really dominated the game! With Will Smith really dominating this period.
Papalii was a standout for the first half, some really strong runs and Opacic looks a good chance of getting the vacant centre position. The downside was an injury to Michael Oldfield to his knee which was already strapped, we hope it’s ok.
The second half the Eels dominated from start to finish, in a worrying sign for the Dragons they didn’t look like they wanted to come out of the sheds.
The dragons has some really poor handling errors and extremely poor discipline which is sure Griffin wouldn’t be happy with seeing.
The second half Jordan Rankin was in complete control for the Eels and looked a class above out on the field!
In a bizarre finish, the game finished 11 minutes early with both coaches seemingly seen enough.
Some positives for the Eels to take out of that one with some really strong individual performances, and some kids showing they aren’t far off first grade.
The Dragons look very much off, yes it was a trial, but the basics just were not done from about the 20 minute period and onwards.

first half Brad's son was bad. Looks like he spends 90% of his practice on defense. I hope he is not next up.

He seemed to f**k everything up all the time in the first half.

Really thought the Drags would hand us an arse whooping as they had more senior players, some of these kids go OK.

Tbf some of the Drags defense was shit.
