Into the starting side that defeated the Cowboys last weekend are Jarryd Hayne and Nathan Hindmarsh (pending Origin) whilst Timana Tahu will make his return from a hamstring injury. Powerhouse prop Fuifui Moimoi who has missed the last 3 matches returns from a knee strain. Nathan replaces brother Ian in the starting side who will be missing for two matches with a fracture to his eye socket.
Eels coach Michael Hagan says the match will be a great test after the Cowboys victory.
"Last week was our best performance of the season and we are really looking to build on that," Hagan told www.parraeels.com.au.
"Having 9 days off between games is a new experience and something all teams are going through. Our preparation will really kick in on Friday when we've had a chance to assess how both Jarryd and Nathan have come through the Origin." Hagan added.
