LIVE: Eels make wasteful Knights pay

The Parramatta Eels are on top early and lead the Knights 4-0.

The Knights have been wasteful with their attacking opportunities so far following botched try-scoring situations from both Kalyn Ponga and Mitchell Pearce who produced horror passes in two different situations.

The Eels then made them pay when forward Ryan Matterson crossed over in the 17th minute.

Prop Junior Paulo pulled off a stunning spin move to keep an attacking play alive which resulted in Reed Mahoney putting Matterson in through a big hole.

Paulo’s slick spin left rugby league immortal Andrew Johns stunned in the commentary box.

“For a big man, his ability to catch the ball and manoeuvre himself and spin,” Andrew Johns said on Nine’s commentary.
