The returning Semi Radrada will be hoping to turn around the fortunes of the Parramatta Eels as they host the third-placed Melbourne Storm at Pirtek Stadium.

Join The Roar from 3.50pm (AEST) for live scores and coverage, and feel free to let me know your thoughts on the game in the comments section below.

Melbourne Storm fullback Billy Slater is also set to return for his side after a month on the sidelines. Last weekend’s representative round was hardly a break for either side with 11 Eels players and 16 Storm players involved in fixtures.

Slater’s return means his impressive deputy Cameron Munster has been named as the 18th man. Munster has played well in Slater’s absence, and will get more opportunities in the top grade.

Like the Titans situation with Greg Bird, the Storm have seen a couple of their players suspended over indiscretions in the representative round. Felise Kaufusi (one week) and Nelson Asofa-Solomona (five weeks) will be replaced by Dayne Weston and Tom Learoyd-Lahrs.

Semi Radradra will form one half of a new wing combination for Parramatta along with Ryan Morgan, who come in for Bureta Faraimo and John Folau. Isaac De Gois comes in for Pauli Pauli on the bench.

Parramatta’s defence once again remains a big issue in 2015. Having conceded a league-worst 24.5 points per game, Billy Slater will fancy his chances of breaking his seven-game try scoring drought.

Prediction:

Melbourne have won four of their past five meetings with Parramatta by an average of 32 points.

However they have won just once on their last five visits to Pirtek Stadium.

Despite the Storm’s big three being all together once more, the Storm’s preparation for this game has been limited by the ANZAC test reshuffle which involved six of their players.
