It will be a battle of the West in the 2022 NRL Grand Final as reigning premiers Penrith Panthers take on rivals Parramatta Eels. The Panthers will compete in their third consecutive Grand Final and will be full of confidence after recording a dominant win in their preliminary final clash with South Sydney Rabbitohs last week. For the Eels, this will be their first appearance in the showpiece since 2009 and they will be desperate to claim their first Premiership since 1986. They showed great character and defensive resolve to stay in their game with North Queensland Cowboys before doing what was required to claim the victory. They have defeated the Panthers on two occasions so far this week but were beaten in the first week of the finals and that one-sided loss could play on their minds. Penrith have been a well-oiled machine for a few seasons now and will take some beating having won five of the past seven matchups between the two teams. The Eels are capable of winning but would need to be at their very best if they are to upset the odds and having struggled for large spells in last week’s game with the Cowboys, it is hard to see them improving sufficiently to stop the Panthers from going back-to-back.
