Looking to make their first finals series since 2009, the eighth-placed Parramatta Eels are one of just a couple of lucky NRL sides that have the fortune of playing competition leaders Melbourne during the Origin period.
With four wins from their last five matches, including two back-to-back against the Dragons and Bulldogs, the Eels have opened up a four-point buffer from the likes of the Panthers, Warriors and Rabbitohs, and they can streak further away from their finals rivals if they can return to Parramatta with two points on Saturday night.
Parramatta are beginning to gel as a unit, with Mitchell Moses settling into his halves role with Corey Norman, while Clint Gutherson continues to make an impact at the back.
The Eels are starting to build momentum and another victory on Saturday will go a long way to further enhancing belief that they can secure finals football this season.
Melbourne, despite losing all their Origin stars, will be far from pushovers though. Just two weeks ago the Storm illustrated their depth and resilience, coming within minutes of beating top four side the Roosters without Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater, but they were ultimately thwarted in golden point.
Smith, Cronk and Slater will all again be missing on Saturday, along with Tim Glasby, Will Chambers and Origin debutant Cameron Munster.
Melbourne are still equipped with a fearsome forward pack, but they may lack some spark and creativity in the halves with Munster now also absent.
The Storm have been dominant over the Eels, winning six of their last eight meetings, but this is the perfect time for Parramatta to claim a rare win down at AAMI Park. These are the sorts of games Parramatta have to win if they’re serious about finals footy – and I think they’ll get the job done on Saturday night.
