Emotions are expected to run high on Saturday night when former Sea Eagles assistant coach Brad Arthur, prop forward David Gower and outside back Will Hopoate return to Brookvale Oval.
After a thrilling weekend at the Auckland Nines, the Sea Eagles focus their attention back on the coming season as they prepare to tackle the Eels in their final hit-out before the official kick-off to the NRL season.
Parramatta’s impressive Nines campaign has provided them with a confidence boost heading into Saturday night. The Eels were able to progress through to the quarter final stage before being bundled out by Cronulla.
Coach Geoff Toovey is again likely to chop-and-change his side throughout the match as he looks to settle on a final 17 for round one against the Storm.
All Sea Eagles Members and Juniors (Under 16) will be granted free access into the venue. Concession ($10) and Adult ($15) tickets can only be purchased at the gate on match day.
Gates open at 4:45pm for a 5:00pm NYC kick-off. The NRL match will kick off at 7:30pm.
