Quotes from Minister for Major Events, Natasha Fyles:
“Territorians love their sport, and we have plenty of Eels and Cowboys fans here in Darwin, so this game will no doubt draw an enthusiastic, vocal crowd, which means a great atmosphere.
“In addition, the NRL teams always get involved in the community while they are in town, which provides opportunities for local sports fans and upcoming Territory League players. Keep your eyes open for more details early next year, and you could come face to face with your League hero.”
Quotes from Parramatta Eels Captain Clint Gutherson:
“The countdown is on for the 2022 season and the team is ready and excited to play in front of our home crowd in Darwin.
“We really appreciate the local fans who always show up to support us and we’re certain the atmosphere will be amazing for our big game against the Cowboys.”
