March 24, 2023 6:59 am

Parramatta Eels halfback Mitchell Moses’s golden point field goal after 81 minutes of thrilling rugby league was enough to secure a 17-16 victory over defending champions the Panthers in a rematch of the 2022 Grand Final last night.

Moses nailed the match-winning field goal a minute into golden point, after Nathan Cleary had kicked a two-point field goal with seconds left in normal time to keep Penrith alive.

It was the Eels first win of the season and their third-straight against the Panthers at CommBank Stadium in Parramatta.
