Randwick (5th) v Parramatta (12th) at Coogee Oval (3:00pm)
Randwick will be disappointed with last week's loss to Eastern Suburbs which saw them slip further away from the top four however they have their chance to go up ladder when they host Parramatta at Coogee Oval.
The Galloping Greens will be without in-form outside backs Kurtley Beale and Drew Mitchell, however they still have firepower in the backs through Josh Valentine, Gene Fairbanks and Nick Cummins. Mark Chisholm's presence in the second row strengthens a pack which also includes HSBC Waratah forwards Sekope Kepu and Ben Mowen.
Parramatta achieved their best result of the season last week with a 17-all draw against Penrith which broke a 28-game losing streak. The Two Blues have made a number of changes for Saturday's clash, and despite Parramatta providing Randwick with a number of scares in recent years, on paper this encounter looks somewhat one-sided.
Randwick: 1. Sekope Kepu, 2. John Fonokalafi, 3. Lotu Taukeiaho; 4. Mark Chisholm, 5. Steve Brennan; 6. Seilala Lam, 7. Dave Vizer, 8. Ben Mowen; 9. Josh Valentine, 10. Brent Kelly; 11. Paul Hannify, 12. Gene Fairbanks, 13. Nick Cummins, 14. Matt Nethery; 15. TBC.
