Parramatta is coming into this match after a loss against competition front runners the Panthers last week, while the Broncos suffered their 9th loss in a row against the Titans. With the Eels clinging onto their top-four spot, they will need to bounce back to keep the Raiders at bay, whilst the Broncos are still a chance of claiming the wooden spoon for the first time in the club’s history and will be looking for a win and hoping the Bulldogs keep losing.
