Are Eels looking to offload Moses.....?

Post by tigerap » Wed 23 May, 2018 1:16 pm

Read this article on Zero Tackle about Bevan French seeking to exit the Eels...(no thanks to the Tigers!)....but what was interesting is the statement about Moses and that the Eels would not stand in his way if he sought a release...haha..sounds like the myth that is Moses is on thin ice at the Eels....maybe Lebanon will make a play for him....

Eels youngster Bevan French may be on the way out of Parramatta after he has not been able to cement a position at fullback for the club.

French spent the first three games at fullback while Clint Gutherson was recovering from his 2017 ACL tear and Jarryd Hayne was not fit enough to play the position with a hip complaint.

The 22-year old was eventually moved to a wing, although his preference is to play fullback, which has left him seeking opportunities elsewhere where can play in the no.1 jersey.

French joins Hayne and Corey Norman whose future remain up in the air at Parramatta. Hayne is uncontracted for next season, while French and Norman still have deals in place for 2019.

SEE ALSO: Tanginoa in line for surprise return
The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that French’s management have approached rival clubs about their needs for a fullback. Gold Coast, North Queensland and the Wests Tigers are all clubs who are thin in the defensive position and may be interested in his services.

French debuted for Parramatta in 2016 and has made 37 NRL appearances, scoring 31 tries.

The Eels began this season with premiership aspirations, but are currently dwindling at the bottom of the ladder, which has left the club needing to make key decisions on their list and a potential makeover in need.

Hayne and Norman have done little this season to warrant a contract extension, while Mitchell Moses would likely be granted a release if he desired so. Hayne has yet to repay the Eels for the $500,000 gamble they took on him.

Parra are about 2 years away from realising how bad Moses is.

Assuming the content has been taken from the smh article it is actually written as -

After starting the season as one of the premiership fancies but languishing in last place, there is widespread acknowledgement that Parramatta’s roster needs a major overhaul. Norman is also unsettled and has been down on form. After showing initial promising signs, his halves combination with Mitchell Moses isn’t working and it’s understood the Eels wouldn’t stand in his way if he asked for a release.


Which means the reference is to Norman.

No way they want to get rid of Moses.
It’s been reported all year the coach has a problem with Norman ... who doesn’t even look like he’s trying half the time.

No to French - only Gutho from the Eels. Let them suffer with Arthur's bad decisions.

What a load of rubbish. Parra need to spend money on there forwards. Moses would be one of the last players they would flick. Haynes, Norman, Jennings and French would be way in front of Moses on the flick list not to mention half their pack.

Dont get me wrong, I cant stand Moses as a human, but in the right team could be a great footballer

Norman and Moses are a very odd pairing...
But as mentioned.... Norman is the issue.
