Parramatta Eels

The Parramatta Eels are an Australian professional rugby league football club based in the Sydney suburb of Parramatta. The Parramatta District Rugby League Football Club was formed in 1947, with their First Grade side playing their first season in the New South Wales Rugby Football League premiership's 40th season in 1947. Their home ground is Parramatta Stadium.

It took 30 years for the club to make the Grand Final, which they did in 1976 and 1977, losing on both occasions. However, this period foreshadowed their most successful period in the early 1980s, when they won four premierships and qualified for five Grand Finals in six seasons. This was a golden era for the club and has yielded their only premership titles. The club plays in the National Rugby League, the premier rugby league football competition in Australasia. Parramatta sides are also fielded in lower grades and junior competitions run by the New South Wales Rugby League where they are typically a consistent premiership winning force.

Famous quotes containing the word eels:

    Going down for the last time, the last breath lying,
    I grapple with eels like ropes—it’s ether, it’s queer
    and then, at last, it’s done. Now the scavengers arrive,
    the hard crawlers who come to clean up the ocean floor.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
