There are wins and there are statement wins. While the Parramatta Eels have three of the former to their name this year they just secured their second statement win of the season with an emphatic 35-10 victory over the Canberra Raiders. In doing so, the Eels also shook off a 15 year hoodoo, finally closing the books on their fruitless trips to the nation’s capital.
It was a team performance worthy of an instant reaction podcast and Sixties and Forty20 were more than happy to oblige. They tuck into this one with relish, extolling the magnificent efforts from all 17 players to produce an extremely rare blowout loss for the Raiders. The boys discuss what was on the line tonight given the bounceback factor for both teams and how the Eels managed to greatly exceed all pregame expectations set on them.
The individual accolades are then doled out – starting with the unanimous man of the match in Mitchell Moses. His devastating kicking game is broken down before the duo discuss his all around excellence in the absence of Dylan Brown. Isaiah Papali’i, Reed Mahoney and plenty more all get their deserved credit as well as Forty20 and Sixties continue to soak up the afterglow of the dominant win.
