On the other hand, the Parramatta Eels experienced a dip in form after enjoying five consecutive wins not long ago, with two defeats in their last three games. The absence of Maika Sivo and Reagan Campbell-Gillard due to suspension hampered their performance, resulting in a loss to the Cowboys in Townsville.
With three matches remaining against top-four teams, the Eels face a challenging task in their pursuit of securing a spot in the top eight. The upcoming game against the formidable Storm will be crucial for them to reclaim their winning momentum and strengthen their position in the competition.
