Beginnings:

The Parramatta Eels are an Australian rugby league football club reigning from the Sydney suburb of Parramatta.

Roy Spagnolo and co have the last laugh as motion to block former Parramatta Eels directors returning to power fails - The Sydney Morning Herald

Long after they were ousted at the ballot box, Denis Fitzgerald and Roy Spagnolo continue to wield influence over Parramatta.

Supporters loyal to the former Eels officials gathered in enough numbers at an extraordinary general meeting of the Parramatta Leagues Club to block a motion to prevent them and all previous Eels directors from ever returning to the corridors of power.

The day Parramatta Eels forward Siosaia Vave almost joined North Queensland Cowboys - The Sydney Morning Herald

North Queensland isn't one of the half-a-dozen clubs Siosaia Vave has spent time at, but that's not from a lack of trying from the Cowboys.

Vave will run out for Parramatta in Saturday night's semi-final, but he could well have been in the opposition line-up had they got their man. The Mount Druitt product was one of the best young forwards coming through the SG Ball competition and the Cowboys did their best to lure him to Townsville. The promising prop was given the grand tour of the facilities and provided with a pathway to first grade, but opted to finish his footballing apprenticeship on the Gold Coast to be closer to his family.

"I would have loved going there, I would have shredded some more kilos in the heat," Vave said.

"Everything happens for a reason. I was coming out of SG Ball, looking...

Parramatta Eels lament an 'opportunity thrown away' - The Sydney Morning Herald

Parramatta have described their finals exit as an "opportunity thrown away", but have vowed to learn from the experience and return a better side in 2018.

The Eels secured a top-four finish but went out in straight sets after their 24-16 loss to North Queensland at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night. The blue and golds led at half-time but were outplayed by a Cowboys outfit that again showed great resilience to earn a shot against the Roosters for a spot in the grand final.

NRL news: Peter Sterling backs Parramatta Eels for premiership glory in 2018 - Wide World of Sports

Nine Network commentator and NRL analyst Peter Sterling believes the Parramatta Eels will be a genuine premiership chance next season.

"I think that next year will be their time," the Eels legend said in the weekly 'Sterlo's Wrap'-Up segment on Wide World of Sports.

"They've got the side to be really good next year. I thought next season they would be a premiership-winning chance so they exceeded my expectations this year. If you make top four, you're right in the mix."

Parramatta finished the year with 16 wins and eight losses, to end the regular season in fourth position on the NRL ladder. In the first week of the finals they suffered a narrow two-point loss to Melbourne and were bundled out of the premiership race with a 24-16 loss in the semi-final against North Queensland. 

"This year to finish top four, everybody was excited about their prospects " Sterling said.

NRL Finals: North Queensland Cowboys Scott Bolten the quiet leader holding the front-row fort - Fox Sports

PAUL Bowman’s old Cowboys teammates dubbed him ‘Bear’ 20 years ago because as a shy rookie first-grader, he would rather have a kip than a conversation.

The current North Queensland cohort joke that you’ll first need a hearing aid, and then a translator when you pull up a stump next to Scott Bolton.

But a few succinct words from one to the other are keeping the ‘cannon fodder’ Cowboys alive and kicking in 2017.

“This is your fort now, hold it.”

Melbourne Storm star Cameron Munster admits his side were "rattled" by the Parramatta Eels during their qualifying final and he won't be shocked if the Eels make the grand final.

The 22-year-old Storm five-eighth, who turns 23 on Wednesday, gave a raw account of the first half of Saturday's game and he believes the side strayed from their game plan.

Parramatta Eels boss Max Donnelly tests club reforms at extraordinary meeting - The Sydney Morning Herald

Parramatta's focus is on the immediate future of a premiership tilt but Eels chairman Max Donnelly will be pitted against figures from the club's past at an extraordinary general meeting at Rosehill Racecourse on Wednesday night.

At an event he has described as "one of the most important in the history of the Eels," Donnelly will try to secure the passing of strict new eligibility requirements to be a director of Parramatta Leagues Club, which owns the NRL team and is its major financial backer.
