Eels members will be caught up in Carl’s Webb

When the Parramatta Eels head back to pre-season training this Monday, there will be no one more excited than Carl Webb at Parramatta Stadium.

The Queensland prop is one of the Eels’ new recruits for season 2011 in a new-look side coached by Kiwi mentor Stephen Kearney.

Webb, 29, is feeling more refreshed than ever and is counting the days until he can play in front of a packed crowd at Parramatta Stadium, who will be on his side for once.

“Parramatta Stadium used to be a pretty unfriendly crowd to play in front of, but to play here in front of all the supporters is something I’m really excited about,” he says.

“One of the motivating factors in coming here was actually the huge supporter base, Eels fans are very passionate.”

The Eels have already passed the 4,000-Member mark after Memberships went on sale less than a month ago, but Webb is encouraging all Parramatta fans to show their support and join the Blue and Gold Army in 2011.

With more Members benefits than ever before, great prizes just for signing up (including Platinum Tickets to attend the 2010 ARIA Awards with two Eels stars and packages to suit every type of fan, a Parramatta Eels Membership is a great way to show your support for your club.

The former North Queensland Cowboy is one part of the 2011 squad looking to deliver a solid year for the Club’s Members.

“No one really likes pre-season training because it is the hardest part of the year, but it’s also one of the most important things. If you get a good pre-season in it sets the tone for the year, and that’s what we’re looking to do,” Webb says.

“I’m really excited to get started. It’s great to be at club with such a huge supporter base and who show their support every week.

“I’ve always respected the Parramatta Eels for their culture and history and I look forward to playing with some of today’s stars.”

“I was in North Queensland for five years and I really welcome the change. I’ve been looking forward to the change. It’s good to be back in a major city and I’m thrilled about playing under Steve Kearney.”
