We've infiltrated enemy territory this week to bring you the latest out of the Parramatta camp ahead of their Round 18 clash against the nib Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium on Friday.

Bernie Gurr has started a review of the Eels football department.

"The process is being led by the Board of Directors of PNRL, with my input and the participation of the Club's Football Department.
