Eels centre Michael Jennings has been dropped by team, becoming the first casualty of their tragic season as well as the most expensive reserve grade player in the competition.

The Eels centre trained with Wentworthville at Ringrose Park on Wednesday night.

It looks as though the bottom-placed Eels have run out of patience with Jennings and he may not be the only victim this season.

Jennings, although being dropped this week, is being paid $800,00 a season and opted to stay at the club on that salary until the end of 2019. His demotion, however, has made it unclear whether or not he will remain at the club.

Eels coach Brad Arthur seems to be holding his senior players accountable for the poor performances throughout the season which have only allowed the Eels to pick up three victories.

Jennings is one of the senior players who has dropped off and shown poor form over the past month, and the coaches aren't impressed.
