Parramatta Eels vs Penrith Panthers Preview
Another quality Friday night primetime game will see the undefeated Eels play host to impressive Round 4 winners the Panthers.
Let’s face it – the Eels were extremely lucky to scrape away with the win last week. If you’re a Manly fan, you have every right to feel cheated by the Round 4 result.
Regardless, this is where we find ourselves and to the Eels’ credit, they still did enough to put 19 on a good side and hold on for the W.
Penrith’s Round 3 draw with the Knights now looks a whole lot better.
Not only did they torch the Warriors, but they Knights came out and beat competition favourites the Raiders, and that is bang on the kind of form needed for them to topple our undefeated comp leaders.
Ivan Cleary has a good headache in choosing his halves this week, but there’s no way he isn’t picking his son, and thankfully for the mountain men, Nathan is outstanding.
Backing the upset.
