Makes sense! Didn't think Pete was supposed to be playing. Thanks!
Surely Nathan Ross will be playing if Mantellato and Pete aren't, that guy is a weapon
It will be interesting to see how pete goes. He had to put weight on to be a centre n his been training at centre all pre-season. I think he went from 90-95 and got the strongest in the gym pound for pound in the club.
So what's the point of this trial? For local comp players and NYC graduates to try impress for a NSW Cup spot??
I'd say so.
Parra are close to full strength coz they're woeful. No but seriously I think it's just that, a trial for NSW Cup players or potentials to impress.
As rednblue said, Pete would just be covering Mantellato and considering his injury lay off, another trial game under his belt wont hurt him in the long run.
Yeah it's great to see him back, any game time he can have the better. I wonder who'll be playing wing in this trial now.
I find it funny that Parra are full talking it up, they're going to get hammered!! Hopefully the Knights or NSW Cup do twitter updates
Yeah I think so but it doesn't matter anyway since there's better players ahead of him
Nathan Ross wouldn't be so lowly ranked that he wouldn't beat Chanel for a spot or even make the bench. He's probably unavailable or is still with the NRL squad.
Oh yeah he must be with the NRL squad, I wasn't sure if he was part of that top squad but I'm glad he is. I wonder if AJ will be going to Coffs too since he's probably our third choice half now behind Gids and Roberts. If Pete is backing up I'd like to see Davis also.
As Leilua's is a behaviour disciplinary ban, not an illegal tackle suspension, I'd assume that he can't play any league until the ban ends. Same as Robert Lui at the Cowboys couldn't last year.
Fair enough thanks
Just a guess though!
Eels leading 16-0 at quarter time
Kamuta, Edwards and Maitua have scored. Api is 2/3 goals
Eels now 26-0 after another try to Ken Edwards and Dylon Gilbert
I think Api is 3/5
Well the flogging predictions were accurate!
Wouldn't read too much into this one. We are playing so many local comp players. Hopefully our main players just get through unscathed.
Sounds like Api is having a bumper game.
Haha gotta be optimistic with the Knights no matter what team is playing!
Whether they won or lost it wouldn't of made a difference. It was a team of mostly local comp boys trying to get a NSW Cup spot. I don't even know why they advertised it as a NSW Cup trial. It's good that guys like Pete, Davis and Redman got a run though.

So the first proper NSW Cup trial will be Feb 17
It's rather hilarious reading Eels fans tweets over this win. I guess they didn't have much to cheer about last year.
This could be the highlight of their 2013 season!
