    Hi,

    I'm over in Aus from Scotland around Mid April (based in Manly) for a few days and was looking to take in the the Parramamta match. Can someone advise if it's easy enough to get tickets and a decent boozer close to the ground pre match?

    Cheers

    Tickets won't be an issue as its a Thursday night game. Get it online as they usually whack on a fee at the grounds. But not just yet as the Club and the Council are still arguing about us playing at Brookie :banghead:

    Closest pub is the Brookvale Hotel in Pittwater Road, about 100 m south from the main entrance at Brookie Oval.
    Great $15 steaks and cold beer http://www.brookvalehotel.com.au/

    Make sure you get a General Admission ticket and walk across to the eastern Hill to boo Choc and Foran :giggle:

    After our well deserved win, you exit the Hill end gates and walk north up Pittwater road another 200 m to the Manly Leagues Club.

    Once they close, just cross the street to the bus stop and catch any bus with 'Manly' on it to take you back south to your digs.

    Don't bother too much boys. Parramatta have a superstar quality lineup and I doubt we Eagles have much hope.

    Sorry, couldn't help myself.

    Have a read at this you clown . Your club is fcked . Sorry , couldn't help my self .

    The NRL is investigating whether Parramatta properly disclosed a third-party agreement for star forward Anthony Watmough in a development that could result in the club starting the season four points in arrears if the governing body rules it is a salary cap breach.

    Fairfax Media can reveal Rugby League Central is examining the relationships between Parramatta, Watmough and two companies of which Stephen Moss - the son of Eels fan and former Macquarie Bank executive Bill Moss - is the sole director.

    Upon shifting from arch rivals Manly, Watmough entered into a third-party agreement with ScoreCube, described as "the ultimate live sports scores and statistics App". While the Eels declared that TPA to the NRL, it's believed they did not disclose that ScoreCube is a wholly owned subsidiary of BlackCitrus, an IT firm that has, and continues to, provide a range of services to the club. The Parramatta Leagues Club engaged BlackCitrus as one of the parties to investigate allegations of membership tampering and the Eels continue to use the firm for a range of services, including producing an app for its junior leagues.
    Salary cap rules forbid any company involved in a commercial relationship with an NRL club to also serve as a TPA sponsor. The onus is on the club to declare any potential conflicts of interest to the NR
    A spokesman for the NRL said a salary cap review is currently being undertaken with the Eels.

    "We will not be commenting on the review until it is finalised," the spokesman said.

    The Parramatta Eels declined to comment.

    "All agreements between BlackCitrus and past or present NRL players have been met with approval from all necessary stakeholders," said Stephen Moss.

    Watmough was trumpeted as one of the club's biggest signings when he joined Parramatta, although a wretched run with injuries limited his effectiveness in his first season in blue and gold. There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by Watmough, his management firm or BlackCitrus.

    Should the NRL rule there is a conflict of interest, it could result in another breach of the salary cap. There could also be implications for any officials who knew, or should have known, about the potential conflicts of interest that weren't immediately reported to head office.

    Parramatta is on notice after becoming the first club to overspend on all four salary caps in 2014. In that year alone, the top-tier NRL cap was breached on 17 occasions, while exemptions for players were often requested after they had already taken the field.

    The Eels have already paid a hefty price, copping a $465,000 fine and warned they would lose four competition points if there were any other instances of non-compliance.

    Dear Brad

    I think that you are the best coach ever even though you have never coached a team to win many games.

    We won't win many games this year either but at least we will have each other

    Looking forward to sharing our first saucer of milk together

    Love

    Kieran the cat

    it gives you a clearer idea on how some clubs get around TPA's.

    Simply get a company that is onwed by a comany that is owned by someone at teh club. It confuses teh NRL

    Doesntmatta are either totally incompetent or they are so desperate to win a premiership they will do anything to get one. Me thinks they will be waiting a loooooooong time!
