The Parramatta Eels needed a palette cleanser after an incredibly frustrating loss to the Wests Tigers on Easter Monday and they found it with a 39-2 clinic against the Newcastle Knights.
It was a case of back to basics for the Eels as they expertly handled a pregame reshuffle to blow the Knights off the park. It was everything both Forty20 and Sixties wanted to see against the Tigers and while that loss still stings, it was hugely encouraging to see the team get everything right this week.
The boys look at the renewed focus on defence, how the Eels were able to able to effectively scheme a new look backline and halves pairing before breaking down some individual performance headlined by the outstanding Ryan Matterson.
As always the review pod caps off with a look at all the other Blue & Gold action from the weekend. This week features an impressive loss from an undermanned NSW Cup list and a heartbreaking defeat for the Tarsha Gale.
