New South Wales coach Laurie Daley says he rates Parramatta a real chance of taking out the NRL premiership this year.

The Eels are locked in a battle for a spot in the top four with four rounds remaining and take on the lowly Knights on Friday night.

Daley (pictured) says if the Eels can get to the top four, the groundswell of support they’re likely to attract could be enough to get them home.
