Eels Team to Take on Rabbitohs
The Parramatta Eels have announced their Round 10 team to take on the Rabbitohs this Friday night at Pirtek Stadium.
The Eels will be without the services of Tim Mannah up-front for the clash and for a possible 2-3 weeks as he recovers from a fractured shoulder-blade, however the inclusion of Tepai Moeroa at lock will cover the loss of go-forward.
Moeroa will make a strong back-row that includes Beau Scott and Manu Ma’u, while Danny Wicks and Junior Paulo fire the Eels engine-room at prop.
In the backs, Michael Gordon, Semi Radradra, and Clint Gutherson (wearing the number six jersey) form a strong kick-return team at fullback and on the wings, while Michael Jennings and Vai Toutai make up the centre-pairing.
In the halves, Corey Norman and Brad Takairangi will partner to steer the team around the field.
Meanwhile at the Rabbitohs, Head Coach Michael Maguire named a new-look outfit for the clash, with Greg Inglis shifting to five-eighth to partner Adam Reynolds, while the returning Alex Johnston will wear the number one jersey at fullback.
But the changes also come up front, with newly-anointed City representative, Nathan Brown, being named in the number 10 jersey at prop following some energetic performances.
