The Parramatta Eels have pulled off an impressive upset of South Sydney on their home turf.
Some Chris Sandow and John Folau brilliance has inspired the Eels to a 29-16 victory. It was South’s first loss of the 2015 NRL season.
The Rabbitohs got the first try of the game, with Joe Reddy crossing. But Parramatta hit back soon after.
Folau showed great strength to get his first ever NRL try.
Then the brother of Israel proved it was no fluke. He did it again, this time taking four defenders over the line with him.
The score put the Eels 14-12 in front at half-time. After the break Parramatta came out firing.
First Reece Robinson sneaked over on the left wing to touchdown. But then Alex Johnston hit back for Souths.
Enter Robinson in again, after being set up perfectly by Sandow.
The little halfbalf was in everything, and still had time to seal the win with a long-range field goal.
In the final minute he also got a try on his own, regathering his grubber after Johnston dropped the ball. Sandow was a deserved man of the match winner.
It was a great night for Parramatta, especially after their loss to the Warriors last weekend.
