After going down to the Eels in round 3, highlights a try scoring opportunity missed from the first half.

A furious, fast-paced and high-quality opening 40 minutes was punctuated by impeccable goal line and scrambling defence from both sides with each being forced to soak up a mountain of pressure at different stages, high completion rates and a solitary try – arguably the best of the season so far.

The Eels were the first team under the pump as three quick-fire penalties saw the blue and whites camped at their line, from where Mbye forced goal line drop outs in consecutive sets (the second of those came when he ignored a three-on-one overlap and his side's best try-scoring chance went begging).

The Eels emerged from that unscathed with their right edge in particular soaking up plenty of attention from Canterbury and made a statement down the other end of the field.

A floating bomb from Foran looked to be sailing into touch on the full but just held up for a leaping Radradra to soar over Will Hopoate and come down with it and maintain the presence of mind to pop up a nice ball for centre Michael Jennings to score his first NRL try for Parramatta and a 6-0 lead after 13 minutes.
