Welcome to Bankwest Stadium for our second game of Friday Night Football, where Parramatta host Brisbane in what will prove a vital game for both sides for vastly different reasons. The Eels have a late re-shuffle, with Kane Evans and Andrew Davey coming into the starting side at front row and second row respectively. This sees both Junior Paulo and Shaun Lane revert to the bench. The Broncos are 1-17. Parramatta need to win to solidify their Top 4 position on the ladder, while after Canterbury's upset victory last night, Brisbane must win to avoid the Wooden Spoon. So much in this for both sides, so stay tuned for all the action at LeagueUnlimited, kickoff not far away!
