NRL Match Previews - Wests Tigers v Parramatta Eels

vs
26-03-2010 07:35PM at Sydney Football Stadium

Referee: Tony Archer and Matt Cecchin
Touch Judges: Paul Holland and Adam Devcich
Referee: Steve Clark

This game will not live up to the standards set by these two teams in 2009, neither will it be of the same calibre as that memorable round 24 match last year. Now that we have established this, I'll still be watching because Jarryd Hayne and Benji Marshall are playing. Add to that the renaissance that is Lote Tiquri's career and it will be good fun, high scoring and the winner decided in the last 10 minutes.

This means we will go with the Tigers to bounce back from last week's defensive nightmare that must have had Tim Sheens reaching for the valium. Tim Moltzen to outplay Daniel Mortimer in the halves and Jarryd Hayne will have one of those moments that leaves us all astonished.

My Man of the Match Prediction: Robbie Farah My Tip: Tigers 28-26
