Preview:
Both sides are out of finals contention but the Titans has a strong win last round against the Warriors while it was the same old story for Eels, so close but so far. 

The Eels are opening their games strongly heading into the halftime break with good leads but their ill-discipline has cost them a few wins this year. 

The Titans have shown some strong showings but have also been abysmal at times. 

Both sides will want to put their bettors forward this week. With Parramatta seemingly the most desperate trying to claw their way off the bottom of the ladder. 

Main Key Match Up: The halves
This match up is intriguing on one team we have Corey Norman and Mitchell Moses and on the other team we have Alexander Brimson and Ashley Taylor. 

Since coming onto the NRL stage Brimson has entertained and showed he could be a very good partner for Taylor. Taylor’s kicking game is one of the best in the competition when on and I’m sure he will be looking to test the Eels back 3 this week. 

Moses and Norman have been subjects to a lot of player rumours this week. With Norman being linked to an inevitable exit from Parramatta, Moses has been quoted as being ‘over’ this season. They will both need big games this week. 

When on both Moses and Norman poses defy kicking games that can rival it with the best of them. 

Prediction: Titans by 10
I predict the Titans to put on another strong performance and beating Parramatta further putting them closer to another wooden spoon.
