Raiders v Eels Team List

The Parramatta Eels side to take on the Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium on Saturday 14 April in Round Six of the competition has been named by Blue & Gold Head Coach Brad Arthur.

Arthur has made a handful of changes to his line up with Clint Gutherson set to return from injury named at fullback whilst Bevan French returns from injury named on the wing in place of Josh Hoffman.

A reshuffled forward pack sees Peni Terepo called into the starting front row alongside Tim Mannah whilst Tony Williams also retains his spot in the backrow alongside Manu Ma'u. Eels lock Nathan Brown has been ruled out with injury seeing Tepai Moeroa named at lock.

Beau Scott, Kenny Edwards, Daniel Alvaro and Kane Evans (who returns from injury) have been named on the bench with Will Smith, David Gower, Suaia Matagi and Josh Hoffman as the reserves.

Kick off at GIO Stadium is at 7:30pm.

  • Piss KP off and put The prince at 9

    • Cameron King is a pretender. 

      Will Smith is Wing/Full back not a Hooker cant tackle well enough too small, light frame, should be a jockey.

      Kaysa though has zero fear, tackles hard and has played at hooker more often than Will Smith.

      Why piss KP off, your comment makes no logical sense ? KP over Will is a no brainer. 

      • His comment makes perfect sense.

        King has a good passing game and kicking game as does Smith.

        Pritchard offers absolutely nothing and is the worst hooker in the comp bar none.

  • Interesting to see how we go with Peni named to start. Browny is a massive loss. Gutho could be a bit of a difference for us. His involvement could see us have some more room out wide. 

  • Weakest bench in the NRL.And the starting forwards will get dominated by Canberra.
  • Mannah and Pritchard again, what a surprise. They’re terrible, absolutely terrible. Brown did 30+ minutes of Mannah’s work as well as his own already, who’s going to do it now???

    Raiders weren’t going great until last week, they’ll boost their for and against this weekend.

    I always say I’ll stick by the boys through thick and thin, but I have zero confidence this week.

  • Id rather King who has better defense and did ok last year.
    Id also drop gower for Matagi = more power and hit up meters.

    Hoffman dropped all together.
    • Gower isnt in the side.....

      • Sorry  Beu Scott (insert )

    • It’s always the winger to get dropped first when the team is losing
