Sydney Roosters vs Parramatta Eels Tips


Round 20 gets underway with a blockbuster. The Roosters have had the better of the Eels, but Parramatta won when the sides met earlier this season. 

I'm backing the Roosters to come away with the win and move level with the Eels on the ladder.

  • Sydney Roosters have won their last 3 matches.
  • Sydney Roosters have won 4 of their last 5 games against the Parramatta Eels.
  • Parramatta Eels have lost 2 of their last 3 games.
  • Parramatta Eels’ Maika Sivo has scored 13 tries in his last 12 games.

Head to Head


Sydney Roosters have enjoyed plenty of success, winning four of their last five games against the Parramatta Eels.

The Eels did end a four-game losing run when claiming a 31-18 victory over the Roosters in Round 9 this season.

Sydney Roosters Form


The Roosters suffered back-to-back losses against ladder leaders Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm, but have reacted in the best possible way.

Trent Robinson's side bounced back with three straight victories and can now wrap up a finals spot with a win against the Eels.

The Roosters scored a 22-16 win over the last placed Canterbury Bulldogs and defeated North Queensland Cowboys 34-18 in Townsville.

Sydney made it three in a row with a 28-8 win over Newcastle Knights last weekend.

Sydney Roosters Team News


Billy Smith has been ruled out for the season with an ankle injury, leading to a return in the centres for Josh Morris alongside the recalled Adam Keighran.

Joey Manu will move to the wing this week to cover the loss of Matt Ikuvalu (ankle).

Prop Siosiua Taukeiaho returns from a hamstring injury after being named on the interchange with Fletcher Baker dropping to the reserves.

Parramatta Eels Form


Parramatta Eels' top four hopes have suffered a blow after losing two of their last three matches.

Last week, Brad Arthur's side went down 12-10 in a disappointing performance after the struggling Canberra Raiders.

The Eels had also lost 13-12 to Penrith Panthers three weeks ago with a 26-8 victory over the Gold Coast Titans sandwiched in between.

Verdict

Expect a reaction to last week's performance from the Eels, but the Roosters make plenty of appeal as outsiders. I'm backing Sydney as outsiders in this contest. 

Parramatta Eels’ Maika Sivo continues to score tries and is also tipped.
