The Tip Sheet lights the fuse on a huge season for the Blue & Gold with an exclusive catch-up with Mark O’Neill. The General Manager of Football joins Sixties and Forty20 ahead of the upcoming season to talk recruitment and retention, club depth, the impact of COVID and the rise of the NRLW squad.
O’Neill answers a flurry of questions about Parramatta’s hectic offseason which saw the loss of several core players as well as the retentions of club cornerstones in Clinton Gutherson, Junior Paulo and Reagan Campbell-Gillard. Not to be forgotten either are the additions of Bailey Simonsson and Mitch Rein and their potential impact on 2022 is discussed.
The club’s depth and success of its NSW Cup squad in 2021 becomes the next focal point for the show as the trio explore the club’s pathways in relation to the ever looming spectre of COVID and how it could all influence the upcoming season.
The first show of the year wraps up with a look at the additions of Michael Ennis, Paul McGregor and Simon (sorry, ‘Germ’) Woolford to the coaching staff and the outlook for the Eels in the maiden NRLW campaign.
