Parramatta are 4-9 on the season mainly because they have allowed teams to run right through them. They allow the most Linebreaks of any team on average and have conceded the 2nd most amount of points of any team in the League. 

Sydney are a dynamic attacking team and have scored the most points of any team this season by a good margin (+39pts). With all of their Origin stars back on board in an as good as full strength team you could possibly get it will take a miracle for the Eels to stop the points from hemorrhaging.

  • The Roosters average 29.7 pts per game, 1st in the NRL aswell as 33.6 points over their last 5 games.
  • Parramatta allow 28.9 pts per game, 3rd worst in the league but have allowed a total of 376 points this season, 2nd worst across all teams.
  • Not one game since 2019 between these clubs have gone over 50 points total.
  • The Roosters right winger has scored in 7 consecutive games against Parramatta for a total of 12 tries. Parramatta concede 42% of tries down their left side defence.

The Eels broke a 5 game losing streak in Round 13 when they beat the top of the table Sharks 34-22. Then in true Parramatta fashion they came out last week against the Bulldogs and shat the bed losing 22-18 thanks to a 76th minute try to their opposition.

Parramatta’s attack has been regaining form since Mitch Moses and Clint Gutherson returned but it is still their defence which is at times, letting them down. Last week they gave up 8 Linebreaks to a team that averages 5.9 on the season and allowed 4 tries on only 22 Tackles Inside 20m.

The Roosters last game was a 18-16 loss to the Cowboys in round 13 with both teams missing a host of players away on Origin duty.  

Sydney hit their season averages for most stats in that game and with such a low scoring game every single point is important as we seen with 4 penalty goals kicked in the game. 

For a number of years the Roosters have led the league in Penalties conceded which they again own this season giving up 6.9 per game to their opposition. 

Sydney Roosters Team News


The Roosters had the luxury of the bye last weekend so their Origin reps didn’t need to back up. 

James Tedesco returns to the fullback role with Joey Manu taking up his regular role at centre. Joseph Suaalii is suspended following his high tackle in Origin 1, he is replaced by Feta Pauga, Michael Jennings is listed in the reserves.

Brandon Smith has some off-field dramas surrounding his commitment to the club and has been left out of the squad, Connor Watson returns from a throat injury to start at hooker. 

Angus Crichton, Lindsay Collins and Spencer Leniu all return from Origin which sees Nat Butcher drop to the bench and Siua Wong, Sitili Tupouniua and Blake Steep to the reserves.
