Match Preview: R21 Titans v Eels
The Dyldam Parramatta Eels head to the Gold Coast to take on the 16th placed Titans on Monday night (3 August) at Cbus Super Stadium.
With the Eels faced with a string of injuries, Head Coach Brad Arthur has named an unchanged line up from his side that suffered a defeat to the hands of the in-form Cowboys last week including Cody Nelson on an extended bench.
In their last head to head encounter, the Titans came away convincing 38-16 victors at Pirtek Stadium and the Blue and Gold will be looking for revenge against a side that they have not had much success with in recent meetings, winning just one game since 2012.
For the Titans, they will be looking to rebound from their defeat to the Brisbane Broncos last Friday night and they welcome back Daniel Mortimer on the bench in place of Chad Redman, while Dave Taylor has been named on an extended bench.
Kick off is at 7pm.
