LIVE: Eels’ big gamble on recalled flyer

Brad Fittler was asked on Wide World of Sports’ Freddy and the Eighth if the Cowboys would win a premiership in the next three seasons – and didn’t hesitate to answer.

“Yeah, for sure,” he said.

“I was going through their side last night and just going ‘wow’.”

It’s a bold call but could be proven correct as soon as next Sunday – with Todd Payten’s men hosting the Eels tonight and a spot in the decider on the line. 

“I’ll tell you another thing – you go over most clubs and they have a ‘fluke’ signing. Luciano Leilua, that was a ‘fluke’ signing. Mid-year, strike player, can make a difference,” Fittler added.

“Can make an error, but he is lethal – I think you can go over most teams that win a comp and they get a bit of luck somewhere with their roster.” 

The Cowboys are chock-full of young guns who are already making a difference at the top level – which can only help them going forward.

“Their junior structure must be really good,” Andrew Johns said.

“The last two or three years, Hamiso [Tabuai-Fidow] has come through, then you’ve got Heilum Luki, [Jeremiah] Nanai, Tom Gilbert played Origin.

“Their junior pathways, their junior coaching, the way they’re coaching them, their identification of talent – and most of them boys are local boys.”
