Looks like another Eel is going to depart at the end of the season, NSW SOO rep Ryan Matterson is rumoured to be heading to Redcliffe.

Dolphins poised to land off contract Eels star Ryan Matterson in huge coup

Hopefully not true as he has been excellent this season and we have already lost backrowers Papali'i and Niukore and prop/second rower Kaufusi.

Matterson only playing well now because he is playing for a contract. I heard he is a bit of whinger that does things his own way.

Well done on him getting picked for origin his form been great for 6 weeks but seriously the previous 2 years he has been underwhelming.

He didn't even make the team in the semi final last year against Newcastle.

I'm more concerned about the number of backrowers we have lost this season, if Matterson departs that is four leaving us with only Lane, Cartwright and a couple of juniors remaining. That's a massive hit, I'd hope the morons in charge are looking at replacements.

Well, that's another year down the toilet, and with the number of players leaving at the end of the season a mini rebuild is going to be required and that means our chase for the Holy Grail is more than likely going to surpass 40 years.

I turn 28 this week and already consigned myself mentally to never seeing parra win a premiership.

I was at the game today in a bulldogs corporate box and it was just humiliating. No backbone in this side when it gets tough.

Yeah, not looking great.
Really think we have underachieved under Arthur and don’t want him there for the rebuild that’s coming

There has been some today that Papali’i wants to backflip on his Tigers deal because of McGuires sacking and resign with Parramatta. This is a rumour I hope is true.

Well it would be nice to keep him.

But it's not like he didn't know what he was getting himself into when signing with a basketcase like the Tigers.

So it's hard to feel sorry for him. He had a choice to take less and play for a stronger/stable club or take more money for a s**t club.

A lot of talk again today about Papali'i thinking about backflipping on their three year contract with the Tigers. You would have to think that this is real possibility this time, the Tigers look like a mess at the moment and it wouldn't be a place I'd like to go and play at.
