Half time here folks, Warriors in command up 12-0, they have been better than the Eels in almost every department. Poor completion has hurt the Eels who have looked a tad threatening when they have got inside the Warriors half.

Not a huge crowd at Pirtek Stadium at the moment, a lot of fans here are here out of hope more than anything else I think. They will be hoping that their hope translates into 2 competition points.

0 all

Can Semi Radradra continue his phenomenal try scoring record at Pirtek Stadium? He has 15 tries in 13 games here. The Warriors outside men will need to be on their toes for the whole afternoon.

0 all

Good afternoon ladies and gentleman and welcome to a sun soaked Pirtek Stadium in Parramatta for the continuation of Round 10 of the NRL. Today we have the Eels taking on the Warriors in what is shaping as a must win game for the home side. Parramatta have lost 3 of their last 4 so desperately need the 2 points.
Just the one change for the warriors today, who are buoyed after a last minute win over the Sharks last week. The Beast Manu Vatuvei is out, which is a blow for the visitors. He is replaced by Ken Maumolo. Whilst Parra are 1-17 folks.
