Parramatta Eels club captain Tim Mannah has one message to the blue and gold army: THANK YOU.
As the blue and gold celebrate Members Appreciation Week, Mannah said the last two year's has demonstrated why the Eels fans are the No.1 in the league.
"'They have shown us this year how tough they are and how much of a loyal fan base they are," he said.
"It blows me away that even though we have had a tough trot over the last two years you can run out onto Parramatta Stadium and the fans are as passionate and loyal as ever."
Mannah and the rest of the Eels team will wear a special Women in League member's jersey on Monday night at Parramatta Stadium.
There will also be a member formed guard of honour for the players to run out onto the field.
Mannah said the team is desperate to turn around last week's embarrassment against Melbourne in front of their home fans.
"We want to get out there do the fans proud. We owe them to put in a performance they can be proud of," he said.
"We have two games left and we want finish the year on a good note with two wins."
Mannah received an individual accolade last week when he was named in the NRL's Academic team of the year.
Mannah is six subject short of finishing his Bachelor of Sports Business.
"It's a real honour to be selected. The way the NRL runs now, you don't have any excuse not to study," he said. "They really encourage you and there is some really great avenues available and great opportunities."
