After trying his hand at NFL and rugby sevens and rugby league stints with the Gold Coast Titans and Fiji's Bati, Jarryd Hayne has officially returned to the western Sydney club where he first shot to NRL fame.

Hayne inked a 12-month contract on Friday to play with Parramatta for the 2018 season a day after splitting with the Titans, citing family reasons.

The move will incur a reported $700,000 pay cut, with the Eels said to have secured the 29-year-old's services for the season for half a million dollars.

Hayne tweeted on Thursday he would look back on a "joyful" 16 months with the Titans with...

Judgment day nears for player agents involved in Parramatta Eels salary cap saga - The Sydney Morning Herald

The long-awaited punishment of player managers involved in Parramatta's multi-year $3million salary cap breaches is only weeks away, after the ARLC agreed to indemnify members of the NRL Agents Accreditation Committee against possible legal action taken by sanctioned player managers.

Given the power that player managers have in rugby league, with their collective annual income equalling the salary cap of one NRL club, the threat of well-funded retaliatory court action is genuine. Furthermore, this wealth is increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few player managers, some of whom have already been punished over the 2010 Storm salary cap breach and a potential second sanction could result in their de-registration.

Jarryd Hayne's return to Parramatta 'stinks' - NEWS.com.au

RUGBY league journalist Paul Kent has slammed Jarryd Hayne’s return to Parramatta from the Gold Coast, blasting the NRL to allow a deal that “stinks” to go through.

Hayne signed a one-year contract with the Eels last week for a reported $500,000 a season — a far cry from the $1.2 million a year he was earning at the Titans. Despite still being contracted to the Gold Coast, Hayne told the club he wished to leave to be closer to his young daughter, who lives in NSW.

The NRL reportedly must take into account a player’s value before giving the OK to any deal and Kent — from The Daily Telegraph — was furious the sport’s governing body permitted Hayne’s walkout with the knowledge he was taking a $700,000 pay cut to allow Parramatta to remain under the salary cap.

“To be honest, I think the whole thing stinks. I think there’s a smell about this,” Kent told Fox Sports News.

“I don’t see how...

Semi Radradra contract 2018: Parramatta Eels to be blown out of ... - Fox Sports

PARRAMATTA’S hopes of luring Semi Radradra back to the NRL next year have hit a roadblock with yet another French rugby club reportedly seeking to sign him.
Radradra has made a strong impression for Top 14 club Toulon since departing Parramatta at the end of this year’s NRL season and is rumoured to have caught the eye of rival club Bordeaux.

The Fijian winger has a contract for one year with the French giants with an option for a one-year extension.

Norman denies Eels speculation - NRL.com - NRL.COM

Parramatta Eels five-eighth Corey Norman has put to bed speculation over his future, adamant he is happy at the club largely because of his relationship with coach Brad Arthur.

An article published by NewsCorp last week reported tension was brewing between the star playmaker and his coach, adding that a rival NRL team already had plans in place to pounce should Norman look for the exit door.

However, the 26-year-old pivot insists there is no bad blood or a clash of personalities between he and Arthur, crediting the coach for his happiness at the Eels.

"Me and Brad have a very good relationship on and off the field," Norman told NRL.com during the club's four-day pre-season camp in Alice Springs.

"We can be honest with each other. We can disagree with each other. I think that's the best relationship – where we are straight and honest with each other.

"We're going to get benefits out...

Will Smith's bid for Eels' super-sub role - NRL.COM

Will Smith was the shining light in Parramatta's disappointing end to 2017 and is now making a strong case to start the new season in the Eels' No.14 jersey.

With Bevan French and Clint Gutherson coming back from injury, and Jarryd Hayne returning to the club, Eels coach Brad Arthur wants to find a spot in his 17 for the versatile Smith.

While he is refusing to rule out a spot in the starting side, NRL.com understands that opportunity is likely to come on the bench in a decision that will leave Kaysa Pritchard and Cameron King in a two-way battle for the starting hooker role.

"Will was outstanding for us last year," Arthur told NRL.com.

"He's always leading the way at training and showed just how versatile he can be. I'm comfortable with him as a starting player but he's also a genuine option for us as our utility on the bench.

"We'll get to have a good look at him over the next...

"I always thought when I was done at Manly it was either the Bulldogs or Parra. That was six or seven years ago. At the time it was a family decision to go to the Bulldogs.

"I wanted to come back at that time and I always had a feeling I'd come back to where it all started.

Parramatta have revealed a new jersey for 2018 - Sporting News

The Parramatta Eels are heading into 2018 with a new jersey.

MORE: Trent Barrett wants Pearce at Manly, but won't give everything up to get him | NSW have completely overhauled their Origin jersey

Brad Arthur and his team had a terrific 2017, finishing fourth before disappointingly bowing out in the finals in straight sets to Melbourne and North Queensland respectively.

The Eels released a statement determining why they chose the new jersey. It reads:

'The new Jersey takes inspiration from the “Thornett jersey” – the jersey worn by club legends Ken and Dick Thornett during the 1960s and 70s – featuring the iconic blue and gold hoops which represents the foundation of the Club.'

Parramatta CEO Bernie Gurr then went into detail describing the rich history of the Eels.

Jarryd Hayne makes 'biggest sacrifice in NRL history' to rejoin Parramatta Eels - The Sydney Morning Herald

Brad Arthur is convinced no player in the history of the game will ever make a bigger financial sacrifice to switch sides after Jarryd Hayne took a $700,000 pay cut to rejoin Parramatta.

Hayne is officially an Eel again after signing a one-year deal. In order for it to happen, the cross-code star walked away from the $1.2 million salary he stood to earn in the final year of his Gold Coast contract. It ends a disastrous stint on the holiday strip and gives the Eels a marquee man at the bargain price of just $500,000.
