Head-to-Head


There have been 42 games between the Tigers and Eels, with Parramatta recording 26 wins to Wests' 15. There has also been one draw.

The Tigers have lost the last six clashes and their record at Bankwest against Parramatta is dire – 4 games, 4 losses.

Parramatta Eels Form


The Eels won nine of their opening 10 games, their sole loss was when they came up against a St George Illawarra Dragons side that played out of their skin.

The Eels had a brief slump in form where they lost to Manly Sea Eagles 28-6 and then South Sydney Rabbitohs 38-20.

They bounced back with an emphatic 40-4 hiding of the Newcastle Knights last weekend.

Parramatta Eels Team News


The Eels have just two players unavailable, most notably though is the talented and in-form rake Reed Mahoney. 

He is joined by Ray Stone with both players out indefinitely at this stage.

For this clash, Joey Lussick replaces Mahoney at hooker. Junior Paulo returns at prop, Marata Niukore drops to the bench while Haze Dunster joins Blake Ferguson on the extended bench.

Wests Tigers Form


The Tigers' defence was a huge problem area for the club over the opening seven rounds, where they conceded 218 points (31.14 per game) – the worst in the NRL. 

In their six games since, they have conceded 116 points, an immense 12 points per game less than their opening seven rounds.

The Tigers won just one of their opening seven games – a 24-20 win over the Newcastle Knights. 

But since then they’ve had wins over the St George Illawarra Dragons, Newcastle Knights (again), Dragons (again) and last weekend they ended Penrith Panthers' unbeaten start to the season.
