Heartwarming Gesture From The Eels Makes This 81-Year-Old's Day @TheParraEels - Twitter

In a fantastic effort from Eels, 81-year-old fan Jimmy was treated to a home visit from some of their stars.

Jimmy has been having a rough go health-wise lately, and his granddaughter Alex got in touch with the club.

Players Brad Takairangi, Siosaia Vave and Sunia Matagi popped in to meet Jimmy and spent some time with him - and even give him a jersey signed by the team.

“He was so surprised when they were walking into his driveway,” said Alex, according to parraeels.com.au.

“He had to make sure his hair was brushed too.”

“He also teared up a little when they told him they all send their love and are thinking of him, and hopefully they can get a win for him tomorrow.”

“He had the biggest smile on his face.”
