Dyldam Parramatta Eels five-eighth Corey Norman says the Blue and Gold are ready to build on their 10-4 win over the Penrith Panthers in Darwin in NRL Indigenous round. 

The low-scoring match up saw the Eels faced with defending 8 repeat sets on their own goal line in the opening passages of play, and conceding just four points in the opening half to trail 4-0.

"I thought our defence tonight was unreal," Norman said.

"We just kept turning up for each other, and even though the win was ugly we can take a posivite from our defence."

"We’ve been on the road for 2 or 3 weeks now and we’ve just really become tight [as a team]. We stuck together, and we’ve just got a bit more to do: we’ve just got to keep building on that performance."

Eels winger Semi Radradra ran in his 18th try for the season on TIO Stadium, but it was a late long-distance try to fullback Reece Robinson that sealed the win for the #eelsterritory home side.

"Once he got to the fullback and the fullback wasn’t watching him, I knew it was try time," said Norman.
