Ian Hindmarsh comes back home

Ian Hindmarsh, older brother of Parramatta, New South Wales and Australian representative Nathan, will be returning to his former club for the 2007 season, after stints with the Canberra Raiders and his current club, English Super League outfit Les Catalans.

Ian had previously played 4 seasons with Parramatta, and was a vital member of the record breaking 2001 squad that ultimately fell at the last hurdle against Newcastle.

His return should be a welcome one for the Eels, as their back row depth is certain to be tested next season, with the established Dean Widders and Glenn Morrison heading out at the end of 2006.
