Shackleton set for Eels return

Shane Shackleton is set to make his long-awaited return to Parramatta colours this weekend, after missing the whole of 2010 through injury.

The 28-year-old second rower was sidelined after suffering a horrific hamstring injury in the opening round of last year’s NRL competition against St George.

But the former Roosters player has been named in the Eels squad to take on the New Zealand Warriors for their trial match on Saturday.

Shackleton joins new recruits Chris Walker, Paul Whatuira and Chris Hicks in the squad, while Casey McGuire returns to Eels colours after signing from Catalans Dragons.

The clash will be coach Stephen Kearney’s first match in charge.
