More simple ball work gets the Eels third! Gutherson took the ball to the line, fired it to a pirouetting Jennings, the veteran slammed it down.
Different shape from the Broncos on last. Four passes right to left, ended with a weak kick that Ferguson ended up snaffling. Eels work it out.. easily with the aide of a PENALTY.
Time off again. Matt Gillett copped one right across the beak which produced a huge mess. He is taken from the field, making it two absences from the visitors bench.
A tougher second kick for Moses. Right on the sideline. He hooks it.

The light show is over! Here come the Broncos, wearing their honeycomb strip, trot onto the pristine surface of Bankwest. Can they turn their form around. Next out, to a raptourous reception is the Eels, who were challenged to 'fire up' from their coach, wearing their blue and yellow hoops! Game almost ready to go! Here we go!
Hope everyone caught their breath after the frantic final minutes of the 530 game! Now, we turn our attention to Bankwest! Parramatta look to continue their fine form at their new home, taking on Brisbane, fresh from their derby dismantling, as both sides aim to get back into the top eight. Neither team has any changes to their team. Maybe a change to their attitudes or structure after their pair of losses. It is a vital contest to finish off what has been a Super Saturday! Join us in a few minutes for kick-off!
