After a torrid first half of the season the Parramatta Eels have fallen to a NRL worst 2-11 record. Fans are understandably frustrated by both the results on the field and the swirling media speculation off it as the afterglow of the stellar 2017 season wears off.
CEO Bernie Gurr joins Sixties, Mitch and Forty20 to break down how and where the Eels have let themselves down in a season that started with so much promise as well as update fans on several important micro and macro matters for the club.
Among a broad range of topics Gurr discusses the Eels struggles on the field, the structure and requirements of the football department in the new era of the soft cap on football operations, the development and progression of junior talent to the NRL level and the significance of bringing Junior Paulo home.
The Cumberland Throw is appreciative of the fact that Bernie Gurr was amendable to a follow-up interview of our hugely popular Episode 5 which gathered traction in the national media. While it always preferable as a fan to be writing about success and good times on the field, it is important that we acknowledge and confront the struggles of our team in 2018.
