Well who would have thought that come round 7 of the 2014 premiership season that the Wests Tigers and the Parramatta Eels would be in the top 8. Well that is the reality, and this afternoon’s match looks to be an interesting match-up between two sides who are, so far, exceeding all expectations.

Jarryd Hayne is showing glimpses of his 2009 form and Chris Sandow hasn't missed a beat since coming back into first grade after a very tough 2013 season which saw him play predominately in the NSW Cup. Young gun Luke Brooks has also settled in well to a full time role as Tigers halfback. He has showed maturity beyond his years while leading his side around the park but the question remains, how will the Tigers cope without their inspirational captain Robbie Farah?

TEAM NEWS | Each side has one minor change - for Parramatta, Fuifui Moimoi drops to the bench with Darcy Lussick to start. The Tigers lose Liam Fulton, meaning Sitaleki Akauola starts. Blake Austin keeps a bench spot as a result.
