Eels enforcer Reagan Campbell-Gillard has delivered one of this season’s biggest hits after a bone-rattling shot on James Fisher-Harris.

Tensions were high when the Parramatta Eels took on the Penrith Panthers at Bankwest Stadium on Friday in a clash of the titans.

'EVIDENCE IS THERE’: Push for more NRL fans into stadiums

'NONSENSE': Fans fume over Dragons coaching 'cop out'

And both sets of forwards tried to make their mark on the game early.

With the score at 0-0 after just 17 minutes, Fisher-Harris was bringing the ball back from a drop kick when the monster forward charged into the Parramatta line.

But with tensions high, Campbell-Gillard - against his former team - dug deep and jammed up into the ribs of the New Zealand prop.

Fisher-Harris was sent flying back and landed flat on his back.

Campbell-Gillard stood back up and had a smirk on his face after the bone-rattling tackle that had social media gobsmacked.

PM announces fans to return

The NRL will meet with state governments to find out from when next month they can accept crowds of up to 10,000 in stadiums.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison revealed national cabinet plans on Friday for stadiums of up to 40,000 to be able to operate at 25 per cent capacity from July.

The move will allow crowds of between 5,000 to 7,500 at most NRL venues, while the fate of ANZ Stadium, the SCG and Suncorp are still to be determined.

State and territory governments will determine when they will implement the new rules, with the NRL desperate to step up their plans.
