Parramatta Eels vs Newcastle Knights Preview

Eight will become six following Sunday afternoon’s do-or-die game between the Parramatta Eels and Newcastle Knights in Rockhampton.

Eels fans surely still shudder at the thought of 2001, when they were virtually bomb-proof all season before receiving a genuine touch-up by the Knights in the GF.

That was 20 years ago, but they are widely expected to deliver on firm favouritism once more, and they can’t afford a lacklustre effort, or they’ll be done again.

Brad Arthur’s boys were no match for the rampant Panthers last week (though they were extremely understrength), and they did deliver the Storm their first loss for donkey’s years the week prior.

The Knights won passage into the 2021 NRL Finals with a week to spare, and good thing, because they were awful again in the Broncos in Round 25.

They’d need to improve noticeably to win this game, and I think that the bookies have just about got this one correct.
