Both sides head into this crucial Friday night clash on the back of a pair of good wins last weekend.

The Eels rode a strong first half performance to victory over Souths, with new recruit Mitchell Moses improving in his second hit out with the club.

His ball-playing ability was on show last week which saw him provide an early try assist before doubling that effort later in the half. He has settled well into the blue and gold jersey, with his combination with Corey Norman a tantalising prospect for Eels supporters when the five-eighth returns. Bevan French made a successful return last week and will look to build on his form as the Eels look to push into the top eight.

The Warriors comfortably took care of a depleted Broncos line up last week and will look to add some consistency to their season this week with a strong performance away from home. Jacob Lillyman has been named to back up from Origin while Solomone Kata returns to the centres in a side which saw Shaun Johnson bust through an impressive seven tackles last week in a best on ground performance.

The Warriors will need more of that from Johnson if they are to remain a through in season 2017.

At 6-6, the Eels are just a couple of wins away from cementing a place in the top eight and as they remain one of the few teams to be unaffected by Origin duties, we can see them getting the points this week in another inconsistent performance from the boys across the ditch.

Eels by 8.
