NRL ON NINE: ROUND 2 – Electric Eels are out to shock the Storm tonight

After an action-packed opening to the season, NRL on Nine returns for more stellar contests in Round 2.

Tonight on Hisense Thursday Night Footy, the Storm and the Eels clash in a game with a big impact on the competition pecking order after both had big wins last week.

Suspended backrower Marata Niukore returns for Parramatta, an asset for the fast start they need against the premiers. Melbourne shot out of the blocks against the Rabbitohs with their new-look outfit in Round 1 and will bank on more scintillating attack from star fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen.

Macca’s Friday Night Footy opens a new chapter in the rivalry between the Titans and Broncos, which has gone up a notch with hulking forward David Fifita’s defection to the Gold Coast.

There’s more than bragging rights on the line – both sides need their first win of the season. Breakout Bronco winger Xavier Coates will play after taking a spectacular tumble last week, while the match-up between five-eighths Ash Taylor and Anthony Milford could swing the result either way.

In the third game on Nine, the Wests Tigers face the red-hot Sydney Roosters on Chemist Warehouse Sunday Footy. The Roosters ran riot over Manly last weekend, with James Tedesco in ominous form and Luke Keary looking comfortable in his new role as halfback.

The Tigers are strengthened with Adam Doueihi slotting in as five-eighth, while young fullback Daine Laurie retains his position after a promising debut.
