Welcome to a warm Parramatta Stadium for tonight's clash between Parramatta and Cronulla in which the two sides will be vying for the John Mannah Cup. Parramatta will be glad to be home after their last outing which was a thrashing against North Queensland but the Eels have thrived at home, unbeaten at Pirtek Stadium this season. Cronulla had a much needed win against Penrith in their last game at the cost of star five-eighth Todd Carney meaning Luke Lewis recently returned will fill in.
