Parramatta five-eighth Corey Norman has described the club’s culture as the “best it’s ever been” as the struggling Eels attempt to keep their season alive against the Warriors on Friday.

The Eels started the season as one of the favourites to win the premiership but a series of surprise losses and off season dramas has the club anchored to the bottom of the table.

Parramatta chairman Max Donnelly said the club’s culture was entitled to be questioned after Kenny Edwards was stood down indefinitely over a driving charge but Norman disagreed.

Given the claim of this new paper, a return to the site would seem essential. Until more “extraordinary evidence” is found, the idea that humans were present in North America so long ago will forever remain hotly contested.

Norman ' s staggering claim about Eels ' culture . Parramatta might be running last in the NRL and battling with off-field issues but Corey Norman has described the club's culture as "the best it's ever been."

“I think it’s the best it’s ever been,” Norman told 2KY’s Big Sports Breakfast.

“We’ve had previous years where we’ve been in trouble off field and all that sort of stuff, and I think this is the best we’ve ever been culture-wise around the club.

“That’s why it’s so frustrating because people are coming out and talking about our culture, and we’ve worked so hard over the last couple of years to build a winning culture, and a good culture.

“At the moment, we’re all throwing that away.”

Kenny Edwards officially released from Parramatta Eels

  Kenny Edwards officially released from Parramatta Eels This was on the cards for a while.The Parramatta Eels have officially released divisive player Kenny Edwards after completing an internal investigation into his latest off-field incident.

That' s what the Jewish American academic Norman Finkelstein claims is happening. He says they are now so unhappy with what Israel is doing that they want to distance themselves from the country. But then he is nothing if not controversial.

Eels (often typeset as eels or EELS ) is an American rock band, formed in California in 1995 by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Oliver Everett, known by the stage name E. Band members have changed across the years, both in the studio and on stage

Norman dismissed Edwards’ charge for driving without a license – which he concealed from the club for two weeks, as an incident rather than indicative of the team’s culture.

“We can’t change what Kenny’s done, that’s on Kenny,” Norman said.

“It’s not like everyone’s doing that. That’s a decision Kenny made, that’s what he’s done and you can’t put that back to the culture here.

“Absolutely not.”

Parramatta faces the Warriors at ANZ Stadium on Friday night in a match the club must win if they want to keep their season alive.

The Eels are only on four points and cannot afford too many more losses if they want to keep their fading hopes alive of making the top eight.

“We’ve got to be aggressive and we need a good start,” Norman said.

“The last couple of weeks our starts have been very poor, letting a team get a start against us and we can’t afford to do that against the Warriors.
