Saturday, June 27, 5.30 PM, Round 7, Bankwest Stadium, Sydney, Parramatta Eels take on Canberra Raiders NRL Match Preview

The Eels come off a loss against the benchmark of the competition and have a lot to be happy about considering they lost, mentally moving on from the loss will be part of the challenge when they take on Ricky’s green machine who have been somewhat disappointing as of late a team starting slow and losing more than winning since the commencement of the season after COVID, this will be another tough match for the Eels and the Raiders should come out with something to say after a bit of criticism has started to creep its way in which will ignite the forwards and the strongest pack on the day should prevail.
