Parramatta Eels v Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks
Parramatta Stadium, 7:00pm
Jarryd Hayne is the man everyone will be watching. Hayne has been on everyone’s lips following his exclusion from the NSW Blues State of Origin team and he will without a doubt be out to prove a point. The Eels side needs a win for confidence more than anything. A loss here means their season starts to slip away from them. It will be a good opportunity for them to bag 2 competition points against a Cronulla side with two of their big forwards out. Paul Gallen is without a shadow of a doubt the Sharks’ best player and prop Kade Snowden is joining him on Origin duties. Anytime Paul Gallen is not playing there remains a massive void in the side that can’t be filled and that will be the difference here. Eels to win but they just miss out by a fraction on being a best bet.
Mike’s Best Bet: None
