There have been a couple of wobbles from the Eels in the last three rounds of NRL action so they may be feeling a little bit of pressure on the weekend.

Their chances of the minor premiership look to have slipped away, and they are facing a Warrior’s side who have hit a nice patch of form.

The New Zealand club have won four of their last five games and it will be fascinating to see if they can upset the Eels on Sunday.

New Zealand Warriors Preview – Warriors continue in good form

There was a big 36-6 win for the New Zealand Warriors last weekend against the Newcastle Knights.

That was such a positive result for them and it shows what confidence wins can bring. That was their fourth in their last five.

The only defeat that the Warriors have suffered in that sequence was a narrow six-point margin defeat against the ladder leaders the Penrith Panthers.

It is a W7 L9 record that the New Zealand Warriors have moved on to now and they have moved to within four points of the top-eight.

A win on Sunday could edge them even closer and so they should have the bit between their teeth.

Of the current top twelve in the NRL ladder, the Warriors are the lowest scoring side and only twice in their last five games have they managed more than 20 points in a fixture.

Our betting prediction:

This will be their first meeting with the Eels since last July when they almost earned themselves a win, but fell to a 24-22 defeat.

But the recent head to head between the two clubs is even, as they have split the last six meetings with three wins each.

The New Zealand Warriors are the 21/10 underdogs in the match outright for this game* (odds taken 0508 GMT, Saturday 5th September).

Parramatta Eels Preview – Can the Eels steady the ship?

Two defeats in their last three games have really rocked the Parramatta Eels. Last weekend they were smashed 38-0 by the Rabbitohs.

So it means that the only win that they have taken in their last three games was a narrow success (via a poor performance) against an understrength Melbourne Storm.

The scoring has really dried up for the Eels lately as they haven’t scored more than 14 points in any of their last four fixtures now.

It has been a significant drop off. The Eels are averaging 19 points per game this season, which is 3 per game more on average than the Warriors have produced.

So this could be a tight old scrap and while, given the comparative strengths of the two clubs, the Eels should win this game, the 4/11 odds-on quote on them isn’t exactly appealing* (odds taken 0508 GMT, Saturday 5th September).
