The Tip Sheet – 2022 Ep 73: Top 4 Beckons For Eels If They Brave The Storm

The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!

The curtain closes on the regular season this week but not before a spectacular winner-takes-all clash between the Parramatta Eels and Melbourne Storm. The Tip Sheet previews the playoff for the final spot in the Top 4 as the Blue & Gold host their Victorian rivals.

That isn’t the only big time game this week as the NSW Cup enter Week 1 of the finals with a sudden death clash against the Bulldogs. Canterbury have pipped the Eels twice this year in frenetic clashes so can Parra get the one that matters most? Sixties and Forty20 breakdown the two rosters and how Parramatta can prevail.

The NRLW take on the resurgent Newcastle Knights. Can they continue their week-to-week improvement and claim a prized scalp? Gayle Broughton will be the key for the Eels, the question is whether they can find ways to get her involved throughout the game.

Finally, the main event in the Round 25 clash against the Storm in the NRL. The boys look at who can be the difference makers for Parramatta and what their mental approach to this game will be.

Update: Hughes is out with a calf strain.

    Great listen as always. Tomorrow night will have the intensity of a final. NAS was always going to Parra enemy number one just for his “silencing” of the Parra faithful a few years back. I hope this is returned and he walks off the field, head bowed in despair saying nothing.

    There is no denying the Storm’s consistency this time of year. But maybe it is finally our time.

    Can’t wait for tomorrow night. RCG first try scorer. Sivo to score a double. Brown MOM with Moses not far behind.

      We need to be in full voice every time they throw a forward pass out of dummy half, every time they go early in defence, every time they wrestle and hold down, every time there is a stray elbow.

        Oh, I don’t think there will be any problem with that. The atmosphere tomorrow night will be Eeletric.

          If people ever get the chance to watch from the western side, the sound is amazing. The noise of the crowd comes at you. On the eastern side and at the ends, you are in the noise.

            It is amazing. Being on the western side during the Penrith game was incredible. I’ll be on the same side tomorrow night.

    With Jahrome Hughes being replaced the betting has reversed and the Eels are now favourites.

    Prefer Eels as underdogs.
