The Parramatta Eels side to take on the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday 24 August in Round 25 of the NRL Telstra Premiership has been named by Blue & Gold Head Coach Brad Arthur.

Arthur has been forced to make a handful of changes to his side that came away with a 30-8 victory over the Gold Coast Titans last week with Bevan French ruled out through injury and Manu Ma'u unavailable after being charged with a Grade 1 Shoulder Charge following last week's clash.

Will Smith has been named at fullback whilst Kenny Edwards has been called into the starting side.

David Gower, Suaia Matagi, Frank Pritchard, Peni Terepo, Siosaia Vave, Josh Hoffman, Beau Scott and Kaysa Pritchard have been named on the extended bench.

Kick off is at 7:50pm.
