The Tip Sheet – 2022 Ep 69: Eels Look To Tame Broncos, Keep Top 4 Dream Alive

The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!

A hectic week for The Cumberland Throw continues as The Tip Sheet previews a full suite of games on the short turnaround. Sixties and Forty20 preview the Jersey Flegg, NSW Cup, NRLW and NRL with the Flegg and Cup entering their final regular season round and the NRLW and NRL playing high stakes footy.

Coach Dean Widders has made a handful of changes for Round 2 versus the St George Illawarra Dragons including the historic debut of Ruby-Jean Kennard. Kennard is Parramatta’s first true blue (& gold) prospect to graduate from their development pathway and marks an important moment for the club.

The NRL travel to Brisbane where they look to keep a bid for the Top 4 alive. The Broncos accounted for the Eels easily when these two teams last met but have been on a skid ever since. Parramatta have the chance to put pressure on the Storm and build momentum for the finals tomorrow night.

    You knew as soon as they went to one ref it would eventually lead to one touchie. Kasey is going to have a busy afternoon.

    What I want to see is Moses put Reynolds in his place. If not with a hard hitting tackle but taking the game away from him. Mitch has the skills. It is more about the mental side for him.

    And an interesting article on the SMH on Shaun Lane and an Eels honesty session after the Souths lost.

    Heading to the Flodge to watch the game tomorrow night. RCG first try scorer. Sivo to score a double.

      Shaun, some v good points. The NRL are always full of changes…..and generally not always good for the game. The one ref for me is v good though.
      Parra should have had an ‘honesty’ session after the first C’bury loss but alas…..we will see how good we are tomorrow and lets face it, if we cannot beat Brisbane then again are we a genuine threat?
      Moses has been better than Reynolds all yr in my view and Reynolds has a super boot on him that our forwards need to cancel with some good define. This is where I don’t follow our team list and have felt that we need an ‘enforcer’ type player somewhere in 17. Anyway lets win.

        Milo, if Parra can’t beat Brisbane then we are not a genuine threat. A must win game as Parra still may have a top four chance. I do think Reynolds has had a good year and his boot is a always threat but this is Mitch’s time. Go the Eels!
