Parramatta Eels vs Wests Tigers Preview

All signs point to an Easter Monday massacre in the traditional clash between the western Sydney rivals.

Parramatta is 4-1 and has been scintillating at times in 2022, though they let Gold Coast back into a game for the second time already this season in a 26-20 win at Cbus Super Stadium last Saturday.

In Mitch Moses, Dylan Brown and Clint Gutherson, the Eels boast one of the most dynamic and in-sync playmaking, game-breaking trios in the business. Reagan Campbell-Gillard is among the NRL’s form forwards, among a host of standout Eels forwards.

Waqa Blake is set for a long stint on the sidelines in a blow to an already-depleted backline contingent, but second-row specialist Marata Niukore is a handy replacement at centre. Oregon Kaufusi comes into the starting pack for suspended Junior Paulo and Shaun Lane is back from injury.

How do hapless Wests Tigers dig their way out of the quagmire? Arguably unlucky to lose to the Warriors and Titans in matches of the lowest quality, the Tigers were blown away 30-4 by Cronulla last Sunday. Michael Maguire’s embattled ensemble is averaging a measly 8.5 points per game.

‘Madge’ won’t die wondering, however, and has rung the changes this week. Ken Maumalo, Oliver Gildart, Tyrone Peachey and Jacob Liddle have been dropped, while Luke Brooks moves to five-eighth with Jackson Hastings returning from suspension at halfback.

Daine Laine and James Roberts are also back, Starford To’a shifts to the wing and Jock Madden will wear the No.14.

Parramatta is on a seven-match winning streak against the Tigers, averaging 33.6 points in the process. Last season the Eels prevailed 36-22 on Easter Monday and 46-14 in Round 14, Clint Gutherson scoring three tries across the two wins.

The Eels are giving away the biggest start of the weekend and are as close to a sure thing as punters will find in Round 6. Don’t be surprised to see the blue-and-golds threaten the half-century mark on a dry Monday afternoon track at CommBank Stadium.
