Saturday, 3rd of October, 7:50 PM, NRL Finals Week 1, Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Melbourne Storm versus Parramatta Eels NRL Match Fixture

After resting a dozen players last week, Melbourne fell short against the Dragons, while Parramatta got the win in a tough game against the Tigers. The Storm have all their experienced players returning for the finals and will be out to stamp their claim as premiership contenders, whilst the Eels will be keen to shake off the “premiership pretenders” label many fans have given them throughout the regular season.
