Preview

Team News: Jack Hetherington replaces Villiame Kikau in the starting side, with Tyrell Fuimaono and Hame Sele on the bench. Winger Maika Sivo and five-eighth Dylan Brown debut for Parramatta, with Shaun Lane. Junior Paulo returns in the front-row after a stint with Canberra, and Blake Ferguson shifts from the premiers to the wooden spooners on the wing.

Prediction: The western Sydney rivalry will be on full display when Parramatta travel to Panthers Stadium as they try to distance themselves from the unwanted kitchen utensil they picked up last year. Penrith haven’t made any significant recruitment moves, where as the Eels have brought in premiership winning winger Blake Ferguson, former blue and gold prop Junior Paulo and back-rower Shaun Lane. Dylan Brown has huge wraps on him as he debuts in place of Corey Norman, but he won’t be able to just take off from the get go. It’ll be the experienced Blues halves that grab the game by the scruff of the neck. This match-up looks like the most one-sided of the round according to Superbru, with 83% of our pool backing a home win. Panthers by 8.
