Injury-hit Sydney Roosters showed up well last week, largely on the back of a great performance from James Tedesco.

His presence in the side is keeping their hopes of a top four spot alive and those chances would be significantly boosted with a win over fourth-placed Parramatta Eels here.

Only two points separate the two on the ladder after Canberra Raiders got the better of the Eels last week and that loss leaves with them two defeats in three. They are struggling and despite facing an under-strength Roosters outfit its the Roosters who could win this one albeit by a small margin.
