KICK-OFF! Parramatta get us underway!

Here come the reigning premiers.. the Sydney Roosters who have gone down with two narrow losses in recent weeks. They are greeted to loud boos from the home faithful in their predominately white and red/blue vee jersey. Next up is the home side: wearing their blue jersey that has been quite fruitful for them this season - all their wins have come in said jersey.

Welcome to windy Welling.. I mean Parramatta. It's a cold and wet night in Western Sydney as Parramatta host the reigning premiers.

Parramatta were humiliated in the reverse fixture only a month or so ago where they were beaten by 40 plus points. Coming off the victory over an always difficult Brisbane side, they will be looking to sneak up on the premiers.

For the Roosters - it is a strange position they find themselves in with a narrow 9-8 loss against the Bulldogs last week denting their premiership favoritism. They do welcome back Sonny Bill Williams to shore up the middle of the field and give them greater attacking options.

TEAM CHANGES:

PAR: There is only one cosmetic change for the home side. Peni Teripo comes into the starting side for FuiFui who goes to the bench.

SYD: For the visitors there are several changes, starting with Aidan Guerra starting in place of Frank Paul Nuuausala. Joining Nuuausala on the bench are Kane Evans and Issac Liu in for Daniel Mortimer and Dylan Napa.
