There were no complaints from the coaches about the new six-again rule and switch to one referee but victorious Eels mentor Brad Arthur is more concerned about continuing his team's winning streak.
The new set-up was welcomed by Arthur who said the game "was flowing" as his team demonstrated a ruthless edge that he wants to sharpen even further after blowing the Broncos away late in Thursday night's 34-6 win at Suncorp Stadium.
"It was flowing. Sometimes I didn’t realise if we got six to go or they got six to go because you’re not watching the referee so you miss it and then you lose count of the tackle count and feel like jeez, we've had the ball for a while," Arthur said.
"I think our first try was off the back of a couple of six to gos."
Broncos coach Anthony Seibold said he thought the 10 metres looked like "it was a bit short at times" with one ref but added that may have been due to Parramatta's impressive line speed.
Match Highlights: Broncos v Eels
"I think their first try was off the back of two [six-agains] in a row, so it was the third set they got us. We only got one penalty for the game and one six to go," Seibold said.
"I felt as though Parramatta their line speed was very good. I’m sure that the referee would have been looking at the ruck, so we just need some clarity about who is looking after the 10. Because I don't know what you guys thought but I felt as though they were in our face quite a bit. They had great line speed.
"They were too good tonight. I can see why some judges have them as favourites. They were relentless."
After props Junior Paulo and Reagan Campbell-Gillard both played more than 50 minutes unchanged to lay a monster platform, the Eels scored three tries in the final 18 minutes to drive home the advantage.
"We had two front-rowers that could have played the whole game and they are a bit dirty that I didn't leave them out there longer," Arthur said of Paulo and Campbell-Gillard.
"It is a credit to them for the work we have done in the break because I think physically we were pretty good too."
It was the finish – courtesy of tries to Michael Jennings, Shaun Lane and Waqa Blake – that highlighted a patience that impressed Arthur.
"We have worked on our patience in the pre-season," Arthur said.
"We did that to the Titans [in round two] and that is the style of footy that we want to play. We have still got a bit of work to do there and we gave up a soft try tonight which is not good enough.
"We came up here to get possession of the footy and own the footy and we did that through our defence."
Arthur rightly said that the Eels "left a few tries out there" because they could easily have scored another four or five, but that wasn't his concern. It was the single conceded try that impressed him the most.
The undefeated Eels now have five games on the trot at Bankwest Stadium, starting with Manly on Saturday night.
"There are still 17 games to go before the finals and we have got to back this performance up," he said.
"We are comfortable playing there [at Bankwest] but there is no 20,000 or 30,000 fans. Whatever team comes there to play I think they are going to be comfortable there too."
Brisbane coach Anthony Seibold said his side was “really brave in the first half” against the Eels but errors cost the Broncos in the second half.
"It was a pretty painful lesson,” he said.
"There were things I was proud of. Ethan Bullemor went on at half-time and had a fair second half after he only played five minutes in the last game.”
"Jamil Hopoate was playing his third NRL game and worked really hard for 80 minutes."
