How many clubs has he been at now?

Shame he hasn’t lived up to the hype so far.

What I’ve seen of Brock Lamb sadly I think he’s out of his depth at first grade level.

Wests Tigers-bound rising star Stefano Utoikamanu is a step closer to his NRL debut with Parramatta after the Eels upgraded the young forward to their 30-man squad for 2020.

The NSW under-20 and Australian Schoolboys representative will play out the year for the Eels despite signing a lucrative three-year deal with the Tigers from next season.

Parramatta have tabled Shaun Lane an upgraded three-year offer as the towering back-rower allayed fears he could be leaving the club at the end of 2020.

NRL.com can reveal the Eels have come to the party with a new deal for the 25-year-old in recent weeks, who hopes to have his long-term future sorted before the start of the season.

Disaster in the making = one captain leads the bloody team and one coach. OK - support staff greatly. Does Bennett have that, does Bellamy have that - also, Smith and Cordner - they have support retired Cronk -but he played - Coach was the coach and Captain was the Captain - Sometimes if a forward was a Captain then there was Back Captain. I doubt they're will make the 8 now. To many ingredients in the Pot. Fuck oath!

Former Dragons speedster Jai Field was a surprise addition to the Parramatta Eels team sheet for their Friday night trial against the Rabbitohs, handed a train-and-trial chance after hopes of joining Leeds encountered turbulence.

With originally-named trial fullback Will Smith withdrawing with an infection picked up in the NRL Nines at Perth.

The draw
If each club was, hypothetically, exactly as good or bad in 2020 as they were in 2019, the Eels have one of the gentlest draws of any side. Things never quite work out that way but still, the Eels face the Roosters and Raiders and perennial bogey side Cronulla just once each with doubles against 2019 bottom-eight sides like the Wests Tigers, Dragons, Bulldogs and Panthers.

The club doesn't face a 2019 top-eight side until the Broncos in round seven but that's at Bankwest; on paper the first real test doesn't arrive until rounds nine and 10 with away games against Manly and Melbourne.
