But the Broncos will be without Justin Hodges, through injury, so that should help Parramatta’s cause. Lachlan Maranta returns in his place at fullback.

The Eels have their own changes, Reece Robinson to play fullback with Will Hopoate moving to the centres and John Folau shifting to the wing.
Darcy Lussick returns from his week off in place of Richie Fa’aoso while Danny Wicks shifts to the bench
