First game at Bankwest Stadium
A sold out Bankwest Stadium will be music to the Parramatta Eels’ ears.
The Round Six Easter Monday clash is the first time the Blue & Gold have played at home in two years.
They’ll be keen to bounce back from last week’s loss to the Canberra Raiders and put on a show for their fans.
Battle of the West
Both teams have three wins for the season, with the Tigers sitting fifth on the ladder and the Eels ninth.
Parramatta won the team’s last clash in 2018, with a 24-22 victory.
The Tigers have displayed some of the best defence in the competition so far this year and coach Michael Maguire has named an unchanged line-up for the game.
Oregan Kafusi and Ray Stone join the bench
The youth of Oregan Kafusi and Ray Stone will bring some enthusiasm to the Eels’ bench.
The pair has played a handful of NRL games each and will be looking to make the most of the opportunity.
Jennings brothers face off

The 23-year-old was forced off the field last week with a concussion but has been named fit to play.

The Eels have conceded 91 points to the Tigers 59 points.
As far as completion rates go, the Blue & Gold sit at 70 per-cent and the Tigers are have a 78 per-cent completion rate.
