Tier One - Wrap-up
This game had the St George Illawarra Dragons go head to head with the Parramatta Eels, The Dragons were looking to turn their session around after last weeks heart breaking lost to the Wests Tigers. The undermanned Parramatta Eels put up a fight but were unable to match the attack of the Dragons pack. St George end the half with a 36-20 lead, the Eels were down on the scoreboard but still had a fighting chance, but unfortunately after a few offensive missed opportunities the Dragons were able to pile on the tries. And the score was a one sided event.
Saying that, Parramatta didn't give up and keep pushing to eventually cross the line for a few late tries and in a highlight of the game NSW Cup debutante Daniel Grech crossed for the Eels to score a try on debut.
