Parramatta have added former South Sydney hooker Matt McIlwrick to the club on a one-year contract.

McIlwrick’s inclusion completes the Eels’ top 30 squad, after the 27-year-old put pen to paper for the 2019 season.

The hooker has previously played for Canberra, Sydney, Cronulla and Wests Tigers, and was a member of the Rabbitohs despite not playing a first grade game for the club.

The Eels confirmed Reed Mahoney will remain in the No. 9 jersey, with McIlwrick set to provide depth in the position.

  1. Mahoney is a 80 minute hooker. We lost our two back up hookers in Pritchard and Smith.
    Depth signing only and one that was very much needed.
    He will only get game time if we lose Mahoney to injury.

  2. Souths needed to unload him so Amone can come into the top 30, he is a gun forward.

    Hope he works out well for Parra

  3. At least clubs are paying there players inside the salary cap, Easts are the only club who wins a comp and gets stronger the next season, go figure.

    No doubt you’ll come up with some of your usual facts and figures which no believes no matter what spin you put on it, and why where at it, all your useless dribbles about Sopuths and Bennett so far has proved just how out of touch you really are, your arrogance and that of your teams players as well shows just how much of a bunch of big heads both the players and supporters have come.

    Coope Cronk showed his true colors the other night when he sledged Walker after a simple traitor sledge, Cronk is an imposter, he talks all about respect and when he was under pressure he showed his true colors, what a complete wanker he is, and Keary as well , just couln’t help himself, Easts players have their backsides so far up their rectums it’s not funny, I said they would be lucky to finish top 6, and believe this will be the best they will come.

  5. This is awesome news.
    To be perfectly honest Woody, from a Parra supporters perspective, I was expecting to write off round 3, but from the sound of it, all we need to do is get the groundskeeper to turn the sprinklers on during the game.
    That said, I suspect we may be missing something, and if so, does Moses (or Brown) need to niggle Cronk as well, or was that just for the margin?

  6. Walker a grub, all commentators are of the same opinion that Easts players , re Cronk , Keary got sucked in on a sledge that was really not that bad, even Crichton didn’t mind it, Cronk and Keary hated the fact they were getting beaten by a better team, they are so far up their backsides they couldn’t handle it, Cronk is a fraud , talks all about respect but when the pressure is on his true colors show, typical EASTS ARROGANCE.
