How to watch Melbourne Storm vs Parramatta Eels NRL live and match preview

Posted: 26 March 2022 1:00 pm

The Storm are looking to keep their perfect early season record intact as they take on the talented Eels.

SUMMARY: The Melbourne Storm vs Parramatta Eels clash is exclusive to Fox Sports. Unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

The Melbourne Storm snuck past the Rabbitohs by a point last week to secure a 2-0 start to the season. Craig Bellamy's men just keep on fronting up and winning games despite a loss of more stars in the off season.

The Eels lost a tight clash to Cronulla last week to move their season to 1-1 after 2 rounds. They are keen to take a big step forward this year and a game like this presents an opportunity for real progress.

When is the Storm vs Eels clash?

The clash gets underway at 5:30pm AEDT on Saturday 26 March at AAMI Park in Melbourne.

Storm vs Eels match preview

The Storm have worked their way to 2-0 despite a few hiccups along the way. In Round 1 they overcame a few ugly moments to down the Tigers and last week they nearly snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Historically there is quite a bit in this rivalry, going all the way back to the 2009 Grand Final.

Storm vs Eels - Last 8 matches

At AAMI Park the Storm have outscored the Eels 246 to 92 over their last 8 encounters, winning 6 of them.

They haven't lost a home fixture to Parramatta since 2017 and we feel they are a bit too strong across the board.

Our opinion could change though once teams are confirmed, as the Storm have been hit by a COVID crisis with hookers Harry Grant and Tyran Wishart ruled out. Add in the fact Brandon Smith is out with a broken hand and the Storm will need to find a makeshift dummy half.
