Opposition Team List: Wests Tigers v Eels, Round 17

The Parramatta Eels take on the Wests Tigers at Bankwest Stadium on Sunday 14 July in Round 17 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.

Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has named his line up with five-eighth Benji Marshall to play his 300th NRL game whilst captain Moses Mbye is set to return following his State of Origin commitments on Wednesday.

Mbye has been named to return in the centres after being unavailable last week, with Paul Momirovski dropping back to the reserves in the only change this week.

Ben Matulino (knee) remains sidelined, allowing Josh Aloiai to start up front alongside Alex Twal, with Matt Eisenhuth once again filling the lock role.

Robert Jennings has been named on the wing despite being forced off last week with a nasty cut to the head, with Michael Chee Kam named on the bench.

Josh Reynolds has been named alongside Momirovski in the reserves after sitting out last week's Canterbury Cup clash against North Sydney with a groin strain, with Chris McQueen and Oliver Clark rounding out Wests Tigers' 21-man squad.
