The Parramatta Eels Harold Matthews side and the Tarsha Gale Nines sides had victories over the Cronulla Sharks and Sydney Indigenous Academy in Round Seven of their respective competitions on Saturday 25 March, 2017.

The Parramatta Eels SG Ball side had a bye.


The Parramatta Eels Harold Matthews side notched up their fourth consecutive victory, and their fifth win of the season, defeating the Cronulla Sharks at Southern Cross Group Stadium.

The Sharks were quick to strike first, putting first points on the board, but a controlled and composed performance by the young Blue & Gold saw the side stay in the contest and pile on the pressure late in the first half.

The side entered the half time sheds 24-6, after a double to Albert Etuati Faavae, and two tries a piece in the second half saw the Eels come away 18 point victors.

Tyler Field having a perfect day with the boot, kicking six from six conversions, to go along with his one try.
