How to watch Parramatta Eels vs Sydney Roosters NRL live and match preview


The Eels will be keen to atone for their shock loss to the Bulldogs when they face the inconsistent Roosters this week.

SUMMARY: Eels vs Roosters is exclusive to Fox Sports. Unless you're already an existing Foxtel iQ customer with the Sports HD pack, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Before their upcoming clash vs the Roosters, the Eels were hammered by the Bulldogs last week in a shock result for a team that has beaten both the Panthers and the Storm this year. The result sees them drop to 6th.

The Roosters were beaten by the Melbourne Storm last week in a result that leaves them 7-7 and in 9th place. That's pretty much the exact definition of middle-of-the-road.

When is the Eels vs Roosters kick-off time?

The Eels vs Roosters game gets underway at 7:35pm AEST on Saturday 18 June at CommBank stadium in Parramatta, NSW.

How to watch Eels vs Roosters live

Both the Eels and Roosters have a mix of free-to-air and subscription-only airings over the second half of the season. But with the whips well and truly cracking with the finals edging closer, you wouldn't want to miss a second.

That means it's wise for you to pick from Kayo Sports, Foxtel or Foxtel Now as they show every game of the NRL regular season. Out of the 3, Kayo Sports is the most appealing option as it has the longest free trial and is by far the cheapest compared to Foxtel. For Eels vs Roosters, this is only available to watch via a subscription service, so you'll need to get 1 of those.

Eels vs Roosters match preview

The Eels vs Roosters was always going to be a fascinating fixture and last week's results only enhance that.

Eels vs Roosters stats

The Eels have had some setbacks, but they would have been very disappointed with the magnitude of their defeat to the lowly Bulldogs. A short turnaround for the Eels into this clash vs the Roosters is not ideal, but it does give them the chance to immediately bounce back.

The Roosters have shown glimpses of their best form but not for long enough this year, with last week an example of their patchiness.

The Roosters have won 6 of the last 7 clashes vs the Eels, but we think they might just have enough to squeeze out a 9th victory and keep their top 4 chances alive.
