Game Day Info - Eels v Wests Tigers, Round Eight
The Parramatta Eels take on the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium on Sunday 29 April in Round Eight of the NRL Telstra Premiership, thanks to our game day partner ATOM.
The Eels will commemorate ANZAC Day with a special ceremony against the Wests Tigers, uniting this Round to honour the sacrifice of the ANZACs, and past and present servicemen and women.
It is the second time these two sides will face this season, and the Blue & Gold will be looking for revenge after suffering a 30-20 defeat earlier in the season.
After a crushing 44-10 victory last week, this Sunday is a great opportunity to get behind the boys, turn ANZ Stadium Blue & Gold and cheer on the team to another victory this week!
Join us for a great afternoon of Sunday football commemorating ANZAC Day. Click through to purchase tickets.
