Round 12: Game Day Preview

Dyldam Parramatta Eels Assistant Coach Steve Murphy previews tonight's match against the Penrith Panthers, thanks to Unibet.

With the Panthers sitting third on the NRL Telstra Premiership ladder and the Eels at fourth, Murphy says his side is expecting a tough encounter.

"They've trained really well," Murphy said.

"They haven't msised a beat: they're very confident and they know it's a big occasion for them, Penrith on a Friday night."

The last time the two teams met, the Eels notched up a 32-16 victory in Round 4 at home in Parramatta, but Murphy said the Blue and Gold need take their homeground confidence to any venue in the NRL.

"It's important for us that we take our form from Pirtek Stadium to enemy territory," Murphy said.
