Gameday Guide: Round 1

The Parramatta Eels are set to run out to a full house at CommBank Stadium on Saturday in their first hit out of the 2024 NRL season against traditional rivals, the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

After declaring the Round 1 blockbuster a sell-out on Friday morning, the Eels are calling on 2024 Members to show up in numbers to help fill the stadium with Blue & Gold.

The Eels are chasing a win at home to start the season, fielding a strong line up that will include club debutants Kelma Tuilagi and Morgan Harper.

Eels five-eighth and New Zealand Kiwis international Dylan Brown will also make his 100th NRL and Eels appearance on Saturday.
