The Tip Sheet – 2021 Episode 17: Instant Reaction As Parramatta Take The Dogs For A Walk

The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!


It was far from flawless but the Parramatta Eels still cruised past the Canterbury Bulldogs in Round 8 with a 32-10 victory. Sixties and Forty20 hit the record button for another instant reaction as they breakdown the win.

Sloppiness prevented the Eels from putting Canterbury completely to the sword. The fellas go over where Parramatta let themselves down and whether there should be any lingering concerns moving forwards.

From there it is all about the good starting with the fullback and captain Clinton Gutherson. Gutho was in imperious touch against the Bulldogs, posting two tries and a cheeky 261m in just 72min. The boys also shout out Isaiah Papali’i, Reed Mahoney and Bryce Cartwright for their roles in the win.

Brad Arthur pulled a switcheroo before kickoff as Junior Paulo and Oregon Kaufusi traded places. Kaufusi was quality in his first career start but Junior was somewhat scratchy and below is consistently dominant best. Forty and Sixties discuss the theory behind the swap and the implications it has for the Eels for the Origin period. The conversation takes an odd Beatles twist leading to Sixties making a bold announcement!
