Always a heated showdown, this Round 20 clash between the Tigers and Eels has been elevated to another level with Mitchell Moses ditching the Tigers midway through the season to join the Eels.
Tigers fans have been fuming about the departure ever since and Moses will surely cop some heat from the crowd when he runs out to fave his former side for the first time.
Parramatta have gone to new heights since the arrival of Moses, who struggled initially but has since settled nicely, with the Eels winning five of seven games following his inclusion in the halves.
Unbeaten since Round 14 and picking up a maximum 10 points over the last five weeks with three victories over the Dragons, Storm and Bulldogs and two byes, the Eels have all of a sudden surged into top four contention.
Currently trailing fourth-placed Manly by two points, another win for the Eels on Sunday could draw them level with the Sea Eagles by the end of the weekend – while also further cementing their finals status.
The Tigers’ season has once again finished prematurely, but they showcased great fight against the Sea Eagles last week, while they will be determined to get up for this ‘battle of the west’.
After creating a nice four-point buffer over bottom-placed Newcastle, the Tigers’ goal for the remainder of the season will be too track down those above them, with the 14th-placed Rabbitohs, their nearest rivals, four points ahead.
I expect the Tigers to fight hard again – they usually get up for Eels games – but Parramatta have much more to play for, and if they are serious about contending in September, this is a game they should be winning.
Matt Mcllwrick replaces the injured Jacob Liddle for the Tigers at hooker, while Chris Lawrence starts for the suspended Sauaso Sue.
