NRL Team Announcement: Round 1

The Dyldam Parramatta Eels side to play Round 1 against the New Zealand Warriors has been named for this Sunday night’s season opener at Pirtek Stadium! 

Head Coach Brad Arthur has named a 19-man side, with an extended interchange to be finalised closer to game day. 

“It was definitely tough, we still haven’t finalised our bench, and I had to have some tough conversations with a couple of the boys,” Arthur said. 

“But I’d much rather be in this position [of depth] and I hope we can be in this position for awhile.” 

The side contains four players making their club NRL Premiership debuts in Blue and Gold - Will Hopoate, Corey Norman, Nathan Peats and David Gower; and Manu Ma’u set to make his NRL debut.
