PT0M0S 620 349

Pirtek Stadium, Parramatta, Friday 7.40pm (AEST)

Last meeting: Round 15 2013 - Souths 30 bt Eels 10 at ANZ Stadium

Head-to-head: Eels 50 Souths 64 drawn 3

Referees: Jared Maxwell, Gavin Reynolds

TV: Live, Channel 9 (delay in Brisbane, 9.30pm)

Ladbrokes: Parramatta Eels $2.80, South Sydney Rabbitohs $1.45

Betfair: Parramatta Eels $2.92, South Sydney Rabbitohs $1.49

AAP writes:  An intriguing match-up between two sides who put in probably their worst efforts of the year last-start and will be desperate to atone. Captain Jarryd Hayne is back for the Eels after a rest and his opposite Souths fullback Greg Inglis, who will also wear No.16, returns post-Origin. Their clash alone could decide this contest. Chris Sandow is back at No.7 for the Eels and Issac Luke returns to the starting hooker slot for the Rabbitohs. Parramatta have only lost once at Pirtek Stadium this season but will need to hold the massive Rabbitohs forward pack to have any chance of continuing that record.

Key: Souths halves. Coach Michael Maguire appears undecided as to who his best halves pairing is with John Sutton and Adam Reynolds there this week with Luke Keary benched. Sooner rather than later he will have to commit to a combination. Keary can make that decision for him with a influential effort.

Tip: Souths
