Parramatta legend Ray Price has put his heart on his sleeve and declared that the Eels of 2008 can go one game better this season.

Price – the last Captain to take the blue and gold to a premiership more than two decades ago – told the Daily Telegraph on Thursday: “I honestly believe we can win it this year.

“Michael Hagan is a terrific coach and he’s now had that all-important year to settle.

“I’m looking forward to seeing Tim Smith back and learning from Andrew Johns.”

Meanwhile the former Rugby Union breakaway has opted for a snapshot from the 1986 Grand Final to be used for his Parramatta Stadium statue.

That moment will be of him holding the Winfield Cup.

“For me that moment in 86 was a real highlight. It was just after that shot was taken that I announced to the crowd I would never play at the Sydney Cricket Ground again.

“That I was retiring.”

Thankfully Ray has never retired from his colourful opinions on the game.

The Bronze statue will take eight months to complete.

Perhaps it will provide inspiration for Eels captain Nathan Cayless and his crew as they look to end the 21-year title drought. - Read More, Here
