Corey Norman sidelined for lengthy period

New signing Mitchell Moses could be thrust straight into the action after the Parramatta Eels confirmed that halfback Corey Norman will be sidelined with a knee injury for a lengthy period.

Norman was forced from the field in the club’s Round 10 loss to the Sydney Roosters and scans have since confirmed that he’ll be sidelined until Round 17.

The club has a bye during that period and that means Norman will effectively only miss five games if he’s rehab goes to schedule.

With the return of fullback Bevan French this week and the signing of Mitchell Moses today, Eels fans we could see a halves partnership of Moses and versatile Clinton Gutherson in the interim.

Moses has been named in the Eels extended bench for Round 11.


  1. BA cant have French at the back and Moses in halves.Raiders big boppers would be high 5s already.Congrats to all West supporters on here anyway hopefully now thats settled Cleary can clean the joint out.Guess its us eels fans crap now to deal with.We get the speed hump plus no doubt dopey Benny will have an opinion on anything parra.Hope BA watches his back…Oh well gunna be a long season

    • Or, take a talented young player away from a (what can only be described as a “cluster”, recently), club and (former) coach (in title only), and see if he can live up to that potential.

      I’m not having a crack at WT, and I’m not throwing stones, because as a Parra fan I genuinely emphasise, but in fairness you can’t / won’t get the best of your players without leadership. Dumping JT was a great first step, and may even be enough, but I won’t judge Moses until he gets some clean air.
