Eels name 25 man first grade squad

The Parramatta Eels have named their 25 man squad for the 2004 NRL season and it includes almost all of their off-season recruits, including recently arrived Englishman Chris Thorman.

The 25 man squad is named for salary cap purposes with the only notable omissions being part time first graders Ronald Prince and Mal Kafusi whilst Fui Fui Moi Moi has failed to win a place in the 25 man squad.
