THE RYDGES POST
Forget the weekend footy hiccup with the Eels going down to Penrith, there’s still Footy Fever at Rydges Parramatta...The Parramatta Eels play the North Queensland Cowboys at home (Pirtek Stadium) on Friday, June 6… which brings me to the point of the post… didn’t Eels fullback Jarryd Hayne blitz the Maroons in State of Origin One for a well-deserved Man of the Match gong?!
That match will go down as one of the toughest, most entertaining games in the 100 match history of State of Origin. The final score was 12 – 8 and Queensland played brilliantly – just happened that the Blues were better on the night – and it is never easy playing with 50,000 screaming fans against you as well.
The second game happens at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday, June 18 and it will be just as tough. Rydges Parramatta has two terrific packages for anyone attending the match – even Queensland supporters! There is a $35 Entertainment Package that includes dinner and a beer, wine or soft drink PLUS return shuttle to the game (kick off is at 8:00pm) OR take the Events Package for two people that includes overnight accommodation in a Queen room, full buffet breakfast PLUS transfers to/from the game – just contact us by phone or email.
