Parramatta have struggled in their fledgling NRLW existence and things get no easier this week when they meet a Dragons team coming off a big Round 1 win.
St George Illawarra picked up where they left off at the 2021 season with a dominant 26-12 win over Gold Coast. Star No.1 Emma Tonegato was dominant and back to the form that carried her to the Dally M Medal.
Parramatta were hammered by the Sydney Roosters and look in for a long year. They were beaten 38-16 and have now conceded 38-plus in their last two.
Elsie Albert returns from injury this week and is a huge in for the Saints, whose dominance in the pack should cause the Eels all kinds of grief.
The Saints have points in them and that should be a major worry for the Eels.
Same Game Multi
Emma Tonegato has five tries in her last five games.
Teagan Berry opened her season with a double and now has seven tries in nine NRLW appearances.
Rachel Pearson has just one try in her NRLW career but the clever Dragons half is a quality backup merchant who looks a good chance to score in a towelling of the Eels.
