Opposition Team List: Eels v Broncos, Round 19

The Parramatta Eels face the Brisbane Broncos at Bankwest Stadium on Friday 18 September in Round 19 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.

After a 18-6 defeat to the Gold Coast Titans last week, Broncos interim coach Peter Gentle has named his 21 man squad to face the Blue & Gold.

Brisbane have an all-new front row with hard-working prop Payne Haas out for family reasons and Rhys Kennedy suspended while five-eighth Sean O'Sullivan has been dropped.

Brodie Croft was set to return but suffered a head knock at training so Tyson Gamble starts in the halves, Ben Te'o and Joe Ofahengaue start up front and Jamil Hopoate and Ethan Bullemor return on the interchange.
