Head to head: Big boppers and class backs

It's a chance for redemption.

Nathan Brown has announced the same 17 as last week's loss against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.

Pound-for-pound, both sides are evenly matched, with the Eels weighing in at 1747kg, and the Knights 1733kg. Picture two fully-loaded SUV's, bumper-to-bumper for 80 minutes in a last-standing-wins derby.

This gripping match-up will get hearts racing.

 

Prince Ponga and King Gutherson. Two of the game's most exciting No.1's go head to head this week. 

A switch in role to start the season had an impact on Ponga's run metres compared to his opposite but 78 tackle breaks in 15 appearances shows that if you give the elusive fullback an inch, he will take a mile.

Big game experience and the hungry youngster.

In a side with plenty of change, Hymel Hunt has consistently secured a role in the Knights edge, all thanks to his incredible 2019 campaign.

The battle of the big boppers.

Saifiti's 2019 campaign earned him two Blues jerseys, alongside pack leader David Klemmer.

Saifiti's huge defensive presence poses a threat for Kane Evans' offload. If the Knights forwards can wrap up the ball, Parramatta may struggle through the middle.
