Burt to fill in at fullback for the Eels

PIRTEK Parramatta Eels try-scoring Luke Burt will wear the No. 1 jersey in place of the suspended Jarryd Hayne against the Gold Coast Titans at Parramatta Stadium this Sunday.

Burt is no stranger to the position, showing outstanding form during the first 17 rounds of the 2007 season before copping a season ending knee injury, plus for all but the last five rounds of 2008. He last played there regularly for the first seven rounds of 2009 when Hayne was at five-eighth, before being switched to the wing when Hayne became the regular fullback and hit a Dally M-winning stretch of form.

Jordan Atkins, who missed last Friday night's clash with the Bulldogs because of a minor leg injury, returns to the side on the wing to play against his former side in the only other change to the 17. Carl Webb, who missed the Bulldogs match, is on the five-man interchange bench (one to be omitted).
