Team List Tuesday – Flegg Flying On Edition

NRLW Team List

Round 9, Sunday 17th September, GIO Stadium


A frustrating seasons for our girls draws to a close this week as they take on the Cronulla Sharks. There are plenty of familiar faces in the opposition line-up this week with six or so former Eels named in Cronulla’s top seventeen. I am not sure if that adds a layer or spice or not to what is otherwise a dead rubber but it should lead to some fun match ups.

Dean Widders has rolled out an unchanged roster after back-to-back heavy defeats as he gives a young team maximum playing time. It is the right call, even with some of the young players stumbling recently given there is zero to be gained otherwise.

Finishing the season with a good win over the Sharks could be viewed purely as a moral victory but given how much potential growth there is in this team it could set them up for a strong preseason.

Jersey Flegg Team List

Grand Final Qualifier, Saturday 16th September, Leichardt Oval


The Eels continued their astonishing late-season surge as they toppled the Cronulla Sharks in the second week of the finals. Now they look to unseat the minor premiers in the Sydney Roosters and book a date in the grand final. It should come as zero surprise that Craig Brennan has backed the same squad to get the job done on Saturday at Leichardt Oval this week.

The team has proven to be incredibly well-rounded. Brock Parker, Jontay-Junior Betham-Misa and Nicholas Lenaz head a fearless middle rotation that have consistently won the ruck through this run. Jock Brazel and Max Tupou have been relelentess on the edges while Will Latu brought a sledgehammer to the field last week with a pair of brutal hits.

Every member of the backline is legitimate threat with Blaize Talagi and Ethyn Martin serving as the spearheads while the spine is both superbly talented individually and an electric unit that works together brilliantly. Whether victory or defeat awaits on Saturday, this team can hold their heads up high after a sensational finish to the season. I reckon they have plenty of unfinished business though!

      perhaps the fact that flegg are in the prelim final should show that the club is looking internally at these young players to fill the gaps in the squad.

    Great Fleg team. Feel like the W needs a bit of work.

    On another note:

    Peter Parr has made a huge difference to the Knights team. Not saying they’ll win. But considering where they were at start of year. If we had Peter Parr we would win the comp! O’Neil should be punted.
