The Cumberland Throw were on hand late last week as Marata Niukore presented the 2021 Harold Matthews and SG Ball squads with their jerseys.
Niukore – a breakout star in 2020 and one of Parramatta’s’ great developmental success stories – spoke to both teams about his journey to the NRL and the significance that this opportunity provides them.
The attached gallery captures the special occasion as each player was congratulated by Marata. Such an event is a measure of the “one club” philosophy prevalent at the Eels.
While unfortunately none of the Tarsha Gale, Matts or Ball teams were able to launch their seasons with a first-up victory on the weekend, the three squads still have grand ambitions for the year.
Be sure to follow each of their campaigns right here on TCT as we chart their journeys to the finals and beyond!
Harold Matthews – Cody Parry, Richard Penisini, Tyrese Lokeni
SG Ball – Zadourian Nevili
