A hard fought
draw for Eels and Roosters

A very tough game for both teams, resulting in a 12 all draw

The first half saw both teams making quite a few errors, but a solid Paramatta defence had them leading at the break 10-2.

Ryan and Donald (pictured) managed to cross the line for the Eels in the first half. Late in the first half, the Eels lost Mogg to injury, and also in the secong half lost Buttner for the rest of the match.

This led to a reshuffle in the Parramatta side, giving the Roosters the chance they needed to get across the line.

Both teams worked hard in defence. The final result a good indication of the game.
