The first game after the second SOO, and it was certainly a good show with the Eels coming out on top of the Broncos winning 22-18.
A sometimes tired looking Broncos team came back from a 22-6 halftime score to get close to pipping the Eels at the post. The defence from the Eels certainly stepped up a pace to keep the Broncos from scoring.
Parramatta, though making a few simple errors at times, certainly look like they are on the comeback trail. The Broncos with all their class, and a lot of home ground support, just couldn't pull off the victory tonight.
Stand out players for me were:
3 points - Mogg (Eels) 2 points - Hindmarsh (Eels) 1 point - Lockyer (Broncos)
Broncos 18 (Tries: McGuire, Webcke, Berrigan. Goals: Prince 1/1, Tuqiri 2/2) defeated by Eels 22 (Tries: Mogg, Moodie, Hindmarsh, Dykes. Goals: Burt 3/4)
