Eels versus Wests Tigers blockbuster at Bankwest Stadium could headline NRL’s return

A local derby showdown between Parramatta and Wests Tigers could headline the return round of the NRL which could cover five days.

“We think it would be a great celebration to relaunch the NRL season with big games five nights in a row,” Fox Sports head of television Steve Crawley said.

“Remembering it’s not our call and we realise it would be a one-off, but you can hear the cheers from the lounge rooms now.”

The clash would be played on the Monday night and bookend the return of the competition.
