Hopoate Returns for Heritage Round

The Parramatta Eels have named their side for the round 19 blockbuster against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and have made one change.

The Parramatta Eels come into the round 19 clash fresh off the bye and looking for four wins in a row as they continue their climb towards finals.

Their last encounter was against the Wests Tigers in round 17 where they won 28-16, thanks largely to the performances of Chris Sandow, Corey Norman and Semi Radradra.

The Eels will welcome back Blues winger Will Hopoate into their line-up this weekend at the expense of youngster Bureta Faraimo.

Faraimo has been omitted from their side that defeated the Tigers in round 17, while Ryan Morgan moves from the centres to the wing and Hopoate comes into the centres.

Otherwise the Eels are unchanged.

1. Corey Norman
2. Semi Radradra
