Parramatta Eels can seal a third place finish on the NRL ladder with victory over Wests Tigers in the final game of the regular season. Victory for the Eels would see them leapfrog Sydney Roosters for third spot, but defeat could see Parramatta finish fifth.

Tigers Form & Team News

The Tigers season has ended in disappointment with just two wins in their last nine games meaning they have missed out on a place in the finals. 

Six of the seven defeats in that time have come against top eight sides, including a 26-16 Round 11 defeat to the Eels and a heavy 50-22 loss to the Melbourne Storm last weekend.

Luke Brooks comes back into the halves with Josh Reynolds making way. Alex Twal is available again and starts at lock in place of the benched Matt Eisenhuth, Tommy Talau is named at centre for Joey Leilua and Tom Mikaele starts at prop with Josh Aloisi out injured.

Eels Form & Team News

Parramatta start the weekend in fourth spot on the ladder, but could finish third or fifth depending on the outcome of this game. A win would see them jump above Sydney Roosters into third, while a loss could result in dropping a place if Canberra Raiders win earlier in the day.

Parramatta welcome back Junior Paulo to the prop role and Shaun Lane into the back row. Kane Evans and Andrew Davey drop to the bench.
