Momentum is starting to build around a rumour that Frank Pritchard may join his younger brother Kaysa at rivals Parramatta after www.foxsports.com.au reported today that the Eels are targeting the big Kiwi international.

The 32-year-old former Panthers and Bulldogs forward is arguably in the twilight of his career, but if used in the right capacity he could make an impact and do a job for coach Brad Arthur.

Currently playing for Hull FC in the English Super League, Pritchard would bring an x-factor that would fit right in at Parramatta, who already boast an intimidating forward pack with heavy-hitters like Manu Ma’u and new recruit Nathan Brown.

Having made his debut with the Panthers in 2003, Pritchard joined the Bulldogs in 2011. He's played 272 NRL games and 27 tests for New Zealand. He's also represented Samoa in five matches. Watch the video below.
