They are looking good, but this is the Eels we're talking about here.The thing that impresses me about the Eels is their enthusiasm and energy. Their forwards took it up to the Dogs pack lastnight and came out on top. Similarly to the Cows last week. They have surprised a few teams so far and will continue to do so through the season IMO. They have a solid forward pack, Foran and Norman I believe will be one of the top few halves combos in the comp this year, and their backs are pretty exciting too. They have a great combination of younger guys and experience as well. I fully expect them to be in the 8 this year, though maybe not the 4.
It's only round 3. Very few teams have properly clicked yet, especially those with new players, and everyone is gassed early as it's hot and muggy and they're still settling into the weekly grind.
