Match Preview | Roosters v Eels

The Sydney Roosters are set for their biggest test of the season so far when they face the unbeaten Parramatta Eels at Bankwest Stadium for a Saturday night showdown.

While the Roosters have their work cut out for them in Round 6 they're also facing reasonably unfamiliar territory, with the two sides facing for the first time in over 14 months. 

Undoubtedly the game of the week, the Roosters will look to continue their red hot return to the competition while the Parramatta look to take their undefeated streak to six straight wins.
