The Parramatta Eels have continued their perfect start to the 2021 season, beating the Melbourne Storm in wet and slippery conditions at Bankwest Stadium.
Two spectacular soaring attempts by winger Maika Sivo stole the show, one of which was the The match winner was when the Fijian international crossed in the 78th minute to give the Aalen the lead.
The rear rookie Felise Kaufusi from Melbourne was used after a goal against Ryan Matterson in the second half.
Matterson was knocked out and looked after by the club’s medical staff after Kaufusi apparently made contact with the eel striker’s head when he fell to the ground during a duel.
« We see Kaufusi falling on Matterson » said great rugby player Phil Gould to Nine.
In the 30th minute, Kamikamica tried two defenders before reaching for the try line.
Kamikamica fell just below the line and the ball went off shortly afterwards, when it looked like Gutherson slipped in and made contact with the ball with his leg.
Great rugby player Phil Gould said the incident reminded him of last year’s NRL Grand Final, when Storm’s Justin Olam received a penalty attempt for a similar performance despite the ball coming loose. The NRL bunker gave Olam a penalty attempt after it was believed that Tyrone May had dislodged the ball with his leg in an illegal game.
« I think Gutherson is entitled to do so, I’m not saying he’s not allowed to « Gould said to Nine.
A flying Maika Sivo comes down with the ball and finds the try line in the corner.
Mitch Moses turns a difficult kick from the sideline to give the Ealen a 6-0 Leading.
A little more than 15 minutes have passed and no team has yet to score in wet and slippery conditions at Bankwest Stadium.
Melbourne looks happy to just get through and complete their sets while the eels want to take over.
The conditions undoubtedly create a few problems for both sides, but great rugby player Phil Gould says the storm’s conservative approach affected their « speed » and « intent » with the ball .
« You run It’s not going with the same speed and intent, and I imagine the conditions have something to do with it.
It won’t be long now and one of the match-ups that NRL legend Billy Slater is getting excited about is the winger battle between Blake Ferguson and Josh Addo-Carr.
« I think it was driven at 38.5 km / h, which is not far from the Olympic sprint time. »
Parramatta’s risky move between playmakers Mitchell Moses and Dylan Brown will take place again tonight when they face the Melbourne Storm.
In last week’s win against the Broncos, Eels coach Brad Arthur Moses switched from right to left. Brown vice versa. Back rower Ryan Matterson followed Moses while Shaun Lane moved alongside Brown.
It was a move that surprised many, including eel legend Peter Sterling, who said he struggled to wrap his head around the switch after Parramatta was forced to dig deep into a win from behind against Brisbane
« I’m still busy getting Moses and Dylan Brown to the other side of the field along with Shaun Lane and Ryan Matterson, » Sterling said in « Sterlo’s Wrap » by Wide World of Sports.
« I heard [Eels coach] Brad Arthur say over the weekend that the change was mainly made to include Dylan Brown’s kicking game – to get him on the right side what’s the better side for the right-footed kicker – and getting him more involved.
« Well, it had a negative impact on Mitchell Moses early in this game. Since his stepping leg is the closest thing to the ball game, he has to step back inward and is out of whack.
« While you’re trying to take care of Dylan Brown, who didn’t kick much anyway, I’m not entirely sure whether it worked out for Mitchell Moses in this area. «
Immortal rugby player Andrew Johns, who now works closely with Moses and Brown, said the move was a welcome move for the couple.
However, the eels may need Brown to take on more of the stepping duties, with Johns explaining that it is not a good sign to see Moses, who is a right foot, stepping from the left side of the field.
« You have to be careful because last week Mitchell kicked Moses from the left side of the field, which is a right foot. That’s pretty much a no-no. «
