District Reps: Round 8
The Dyldam Parramatta Eels Harold Matthews and SG Ball sides have not let last week’s bye slow them down as they claimed victories over their Round 8 opponents, the Manly Sea Eagles.
The young Eels side have continued their undefeated streak in 2015, winning their seventh consecutive game of the season to sit at the top of the table.
The Blue and Gold entered the halftime break in control of the game, entering the sheds with a 30-0 lead before coasting in the second half to come away 42 point victors, keeping their opposition scoreless.
Noel Aukafolau and Filia Utoikamanu made the most of the wet and greasy conditions crossing for two tries.
Parramatta Eels 42 (Noel Aukafolau 2, Filia Utoikamanu 2, Haze Dunster, Kytak Chan, Alex Seve, Jesse Cronin tries; Seve 5 goals)

The Eels SG Ball side returned from the bye with plenty of spring in their step, and thanks to three tries from Sione Katoa, the Eels came away with their fourth win of the season.
Entering the half time break infront, 26-6, the Eels maintained their lead and controlled the back end to claim victory 38-10.
Parramatta Eels 38 (Sione Katoa 3, Michael Doolan, Troy Dargan, Denzal Tonise, Cameron King tries; Simon Fonua 4, Doolan goals)
