The Parramatta Eels line up to take on the North Queensland Cowboys at 1300SMILES Stadium, Townsville on Saturday 18 May in Round 10 of the NRL Telstra Premiership has been named by Blue & Gold Head Coach Brad Arthur.

After a loss to the Melbourne Storm last week, Arthur has made a handful of changes to his line up with George Jennings and Josh Hoffman called into the outside backs in place of Maika Sivo (suspended) and Michael Jennings (injured).

Will Smith will partner Mitch Moses in the halves whilst Manu Ma’u comes into the starting side at lock.

Peni Terepo, Tim Mannah, Tepai Moeroa and Oregon Kaufusi form the bench whilst Kane Evans, Matt McIlwrick, Jaeman Salmon and Bevan French are on the reserves.

Will Smith will play his 50th NRL game.

  • LOL

  • This side will get hammered! Here we go again.

    • As anticipated BA has largely stuck with the same side only sacking Salmon. Does Taka have something on BA? What does he have to do to get sacked after another woeful performance. This is a poor side imo and will cop another hiding on Saturday. Our poor roster is really showing in some of the selections made.

       

      • Yep. No real changes other than players for injury or suspension.

        Salmon is the only change and for Will Smith FFS.

        Taka must have a sex tape or something.

        The most woefully inept first grader ever. Averages 4 fuck ups per game. Last week it was seven. God damn.

         

      • I'd imagine the injury to Michael Jennings means he doesn't want to throw a debutant into the side given Taka's replacement in Josh Hoffman is replacing Jennings this week.

  • I think it was a bit harsh to drop Salmon. I would have at least chucked him at centre this week. Very harsh.

    • Did you see his defence on the weekend? Very, very poor. 

      • If bad defense caused him to get dropped why is ANYONE playing this week from the 17 who got smashed

    • I agree. Good for nothing Taka keeps his spot....

      • This guys got more lives than a cat.
