Coach Graham Murray has named his team, sans Origin representatives, to take on the Parramatta Eels on Saturday night.
It is still a strong team, let around the park by veteran Jason Smith at halfback, and pocket rocket Matt Bowen from fullback, who will be out to show the selectors exactly what they missed out on by not selecting him in the Queensland Origin team.
