NRL Draw: Eels, Storm to start 2014
The NRL has given clubs a sneak peak at some of the exciting match-ups ahead of the full NRL draw annoucment tomorrow at 11am (AEST).
Round One sees us take on old-rivals the Parramatta Eels at Pirtek Stadium in a blockbuster encounter that sees Anthony Watmough take on his former employer for the first time in the second match of 2015.
A number of former Eagles are now Eels, so it's sure to be a classic with much more than two-points on the line for the old foes.

The Sea Eagles then head back to Fortress Brookvale to host arch-rivals the Melbourne Storm on Saturday, March 14.
With the Storm having pipped the team in a Golden-Point thriller in Round One last year -the sides only loss at home all year - there's plenty on the line in this bi-annual grudge match.
Skipper Jamie Lyon recently listed the Storm as one of the sides he looks forward to playing the most each season.
"We've had some good tussles with the Storm over the years and I just feel that we've got a good, healthy rivalry there," Lyon said.
"We both respect each other and each match seems to be close, so I enjoy playing against the Mexicans."
The full draw is released at 11am AEST Monday 15th December.
