Foran V Hunt

Kieran Foran will look to prove he is one of the leaders that Parramatta needs to become a finals contender this season and is relishing the chance to play a side like Brisbane in round one. He will certainly have plenty on his plate as Broncos’ halfback Ben Hunt was statistically one of the best halves in the game last year, only topped by Johnathan Thurston in a year where he won his fourth Dally M Medal. Foran stated earlier this week that the Eels simply need to shut Hunt down so this will be quite the contest.

Norman V Milford

These two players are capable of turning a game on its head at any time they choose. Former Bronco Corey Norman has already proven himself to be a real danger this year by leading Eels to their first Auckland Nines tournament win, so he will be overflowing with confidence. Although statistically Milford was the stronger of the two last season - breaking a mammoth 75 tackles, the most of any halfback in 2015 - you can’t count out a player like Norman.

Jennings V Roberts

Both Michael Jennings and James Roberts find themselves at new clubs this year and will no doubt be eager to impress. New Parramatta signing Jennings is a key player to any side he plays in and proved it when he won man of the match for NSW in the second State of Origin game of 2015. But if you judge a centre by their scoring potential he was outdone last season by the man some call ‘the fastest man in the game’ - Bronco Roberts. The former Titan managed to score 16 tries (the most of any centre in 2015) so Broncos’ fans will be hoping he puts on a real show.

Radradra V Eden

One is a known try scorer and the other is a somewhat unknown which should make this a great head-to-head battle. Eden will be the underdog and will make his NRL debut on the wing against the 100kg flying Fijian, who tore apart opposition defences last season as he scored more tries than anyone with 24 in total. But don’t count out the former English Super League flyer that wowed Wayne Bennett with his performance in the World Club Series. He even brought a smirk to the face of his coach after one of his impressive runs down the sideline against Wigan last month.
