Fiji Bati winger Maika Sivo and centre Waqa Blake have been named in the starting line-up for the Parramatta Eels to face the Manly Sea Eagles in Round 22 of the NRL tomorrow.
The Fijian duo scored a try each in their 40-12 loss against the South Sydney Rabbitohs last week but this time around they will be eager to turn the fortunes around for the Eels.
Meanwhile, the Eels will have two debutants this week.
Michael Oldfield will make his Club debut on the right wing after spending the year playing NSW Cup.
The 30-year-old has played 100 games across the NRL and English Super League since 2010.
The Eels is his sixth NRL Club.
Makahesi Makatoa will make his NRL debut off the bench and he previously played for Featherstone Rovers in the RFL Championship in the UK and also spent the year in NSW Cup for the Eels.
Following 7 losses and 13 wins, the Eels are currently on the fourth spot with 28 points.
The Eels will take on the Sea Eagles at 9.35pm.
