A tough clash for our Holden Cup side tonight as they take on the 10th placed Eels at Parramatta Stadium.


The young Tricolours are in good from and are coming off a strong victory over the Storm a fortnight ago.


On the other hand the Eels were defeated by the Titans and would be keen to turn some inconsistent form in to a solid run home at the back end of the season.


Sitting just outside the top 8 the Eels have a plethora of handy players including prop Daniel Alvaro and winger James Tuitahi who were a handful for the Titans, last start despite the loss.


Parramatta Stadium has proved to be a bit of a fortress for the home side having lost just once at the ground in 2013.


When these two sides met earlier in the season the Tricolours got the two points, albeit by just, two points!


Two of the the three Tricolours losses this season have been against lower ranked sides, but in truth the teams performance against the Storm suggests a victory is likely should the young Roosters perform to the best of their ability.


Captain Rhyse Martin has been in devastating form all season, whilst the forward pack has constantly ensured the majority of play has taken place at the attacking end of the field.


Of the 22 combined matches both these sides have played, they have only kept their opposition below 20 points on 7 occasions so it would be fair to say we could expect quite a few points this evening.
