The NRL Premiership continues this afternoon when the Sydney Roosters play the Parramatta Eels at Suncorp Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 4.05pm AEST.

We get a clash of the heavyweights this afternoon, when these two top eight sides look to go one step closer to semi-final action at the end of the season.

The much-fancied Roosters have missed a beat at times this season but they seemed to find something like their best last Saturday night. Sure, the Titans were disappointing, but the 44-16 scoreline suggests that the Roosters attack finally gelled.

James Tedesco was in everything, scoring 3 tries in an impressive performance. The combination between Luke Keary and Sam Walker is slowly coming together and Victor Radley will be primed for a big one against the Eels.

Connor Watson comes in for the injured Sam Verrills. Lindsay Collins’ suspension means Sio Siua Taukeiaho will start and Daniel Fifita will join the bench.

After a poor effort against the Cowboys the week before, the Eels took on the toughest assignment in the NRL last weekend, and won. The 22-20 win over the Panthers ended the premier’s home winning streak and announced another serious contender for this premiership.

The Eels absorbed everything the Panthers threw at them and returned it with interest. Isaiah Papali’i was superb for Parramatta whilst Dylan Brown’s move back to 5/8th proved the right one.

Brad Arthur has the luxury of naming an unchanged team.

Prediction

On form, you’d give this to the Eels after the win against Penrith.

However, I think the Eels may be a little flat after last weekend, whereas the Roosters will be keen to make a big statement.

I think they will deliver an upset.
