Dyldam Parramatta Eels second-rower Kenny Edwards has labelled Sunday afternoon's loss to the Newcastle Knights as a learning experience for a green Eels side this season. 

The Blue and Gold head into the bye with back-to-back losses to the Storm and Knights, but Edwards thinks the side will benefit from a solid rest before its Round 18 match.

"Man, it was a frustrating game," Edwards said.

"It’s something for us to learn from: if we want to play semi-final footy, then games like today we’ve got to come away with the win."

"I think our last tackle options were not the best they’ve been all year, and that’s something we can work on."

"We’re not happy at all going in with a loss into the bye, but we’ve got ten days off now and we’ll be ready to fire against the Warriors in two weeks."
