Parramatta looked all but certain to claim their first away win of the season last time out against St George but conceded two tries in the last seven minutes to succumb to yet another defeat on the road. A trip to Newcastle without star fullback Kalyn Ponga could now represent the Eels’ best chance to snap their streak. The Knights haven’t won at home since Round 5 with six consecutive losses, their latest defeat coming against Canterbury last time out. It remains to be seen how the Knights will cope without Ponga who is the leading contender for the Dally M but it’s hard to imagine that his loss will not be greatly felt with the Eels capitalising on his absence to claim the win.
