Last Time We Met The Eels

The Last Time We Met the Parramatta Eels was in a blockbuster battle at ANZ Stadium over 14 months ago.

Last Time We Met the Eels

On that occasion, the Roosters were also looking to break the Eels undefeated streak to start the season. 

It was a back and forth affair on the night, with the first half seeing just a try a piece and the second half exploding into an offensive frenzy. 

The Roosters would finish the match with three unanswered tries to edge the Eels, though the score didn't reflect the back and forth nature of the battle. 

Once again the Roosters will face an undefeated Eels side when they face off on Saturday night at Bankwest Stadium.
