Opposition Team List: Eels v Storm, Round 15

The Parramatta Eels face the Melbourne Storm on Thursday 20 August at Bankwest Stadium in Round 15 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.

Opposition Head Coach Craig Bellamy has named his side for the clash, looking for their ninth consecutive victory, including a 24-6 victory over the Sydney Roosters last week.

Sandor Earl replaces Suliasi Vunivalu (broken jaw) on the wing and Tino Fa'asuamaleaui starts at lock for Dale Finucane (calf), with Albert Vete joining the bench. Halfback Jahrome Hughes has been named despite a groin injury last week, although Cooper Johns in jersey 20 is on standby for a debut if Hughes is not passed fit.
