Show Preview

The Penrith Panthers host the Parramatta Eels in Friday Night Footy. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 8pm AEST.

Parramatta star Mitch Moses insists Penrith remain the hardest team to beat in the NRL, despite the Eels being the only side to have a winning regular-season record over the Panthers this decade.

Parramatta’s ability to trouble the three-time defending premiers is best summed up in their regular-season run against the Panthers, which now stands at 5-3 since the start of 2020.

The Eels’ record against the Panthers is somehow better than results against the likes of Manly (4-4), North Queensland (3-2) and perennial strugglers St George Illawarra (2-2) in the same time period.

Despite that, Moses remains adamant the Panthers are the biggest challenge for them in the competition, ahead of Friday night’s battle of the west in Penrith.

Prediction

The Panthers were below their best in losing to Melbourne last week while the Eels thrashed the Dogs in round 1. Panthers by 2
