Brad Arthur set to LEAVE Parramatta Eels after 12 years in charge with NRL club pulling the trigger following sluggish start to 2024 season

  • Brad Arthur is set to be sacked by Parramatta 
  • The Eels have lost six of their last seven games 
  • Arthur, 49, had been in charge since 2012 

Parramatta Eels are reportedly set to part ways with coach Brad Arthur, with the Sydney Morning Herald claiming an announcement is expected imminently.

The Eels were thumped 48-16 by the Melbourne Storm at Magic Round over the weekend, heaping further pressure on a coach who had mustered just three wins from a possible 10 this season.

Arthur, 49, took over as interim coach in 2012 and took the Eels to the 2022 grand final, where they were defeated 28-12 by Penrith Panthers.

The Eels failed to make the finals last year and are currently in the midst of a torrid run of form, losing six of their last seven games.

To further compound his misery, Athur has been without star halfback Mitchell Moses, who has been out with a foot injury since round three.

The 49-year-old said after the defeat to the Storm he was the right man to turn things around, insisting he ‘would never walk away from a fight.’ 

‘I still believe in this team, but they’ve got to start to believe in themselves, especially when we’re under a bit of pressure,’ he said.

‘We’re five minutes after the game, but there hasn’t been any indication from the club towards me. All they want to do is get around us to support myself and the rest of the coaches and the team.

‘But at the end of the day, what matters is what we’re doing on the field for 80 minutes and it’s not good enough at the moment.’

But the Eels hierarchy seemingly think differently, with an announcement set to be made shortly.
