Coach Neil Henry has shown faith in the squad that was beaten by Brisbane Broncos last Friday night with the same 18 players selected for Saturday’s clash with the Eels at Parramatta Stadium (3pm).

That means that he will carry no specialist hooker on the bench and that Ryan Simpkins will be called on to relieve Kierran Moseley at dummy half for a brief period during the match.

Lachlan Burr has retained his spot on the interchange bench, giving the squad extra size and rotation ability up front, alongside Simpkins, Eddy Pettybourne and Agnatius Paasi.
