Parramatta Eels vs Brisbane Broncos Preview
The Eels find themselves firmly in the danger zone with two rounds remaining as they desperately cling to their spot inside the top four.
After shutting out the Storm four weeks ago, the last three weeks have been largely forgettable for head coach Brad Arthur.
The Eels backed up their performance against Melbourne with a shutout loss to the Rabbitohs, followed by a less than convincing performance two weeks against the Warriors on the Central Coast.
The worst was yet to come though as the Eels failed to score a try in their 20-2 loss to the Panthers in Penrith.
Fortunately, Parramatta has been afforded a huge opportunity to steer the ship back in the right direction against a Broncos side that has now lost nine in a row.
Brisbane showed some signs of life last week in the Queensland Derby but still failed to come away with the chocolates against the rival Titans.
These two sides are well familiar with one another after meeting in two very forgettable games over the last 12 months.
The Broncos infamously lost 58-0 to the Eels in the finals last year, before losing 34-6 in Round 3 back in May.
With Reed Mahoney likely returning this week for Parramatta, we might see a similar story unfold at Bankwest.
