Pirtek Parramatta Eels name six new faces for Round 1

The Pirtek Parramatta Eels have named six new faces for their season opening blockbuster against the Warriors at Eden Park this Saturday night in New Zealand.

New recruits Chris Walker and Carl Webb will officially pull on the blue and gold jersey for the first time, Casey McGuire makes his return after 12 years, while former Storm player Billy Rogers has been named on an extended bench.

Local juniors Mitchell Allgood and Ryan Morgan will make their debut for the Eels. Allgood originally played in Penrith's junior league before switching to the Eels, playing Toyota Cup and for Wentworthville in the NSW Cup. Morgan is a Greystanes junior and is graduating from a solid year in the Toyota Cup in 2010.

Superboot Luke Burt is looking to reach 1500 career points against the Warriors, and is just five points shy of the milestone.
