Eels v Warriors
Parramatta Stadium
Saturday 5.30pm (local time)

Two clubs that have endured both dizzying highs and crushing lows in recent years head into 2013 with new coaches and hopes of turning around their flagging fortunes.

For Parramatta, this is very much the start of a new era following the failed Stephen Kearney experiment of 2011 and 2012. While the retirements of club greats Nathan Hindmarsh and Luke Burt were always going to be felt at a club they have represented with pride for well over a decade, the arrival of highly respected coach Ricky Stuart and his own brand new coaching staff has the Eels well prepared for the fresh start they desperately need.

Parramatta hasn't been overly active in the player market, with Manly duo Darcy Lussick and Daniel Harrison the most notable arrivals, but there is no doubt that Stuart is their biggest signing of 2013. A premiership-winning coach with the Roosters in 2002, the former Australian Test halfback is renowned for being ruthless in his pursuit of excellence. And the fact that every side he has coached has been strong defensively should be music to the ears of the Parramatta faithful given their aversion to tacking over the past two years.
That said, he isn't a miracle worker and although he will expect significant improvement this season it remains to be seen just how far he can take them in phase one of his long-term mission – even if he can get star fullback Jarryd Hayne fit and firing again.

Their opponents this week face their own set of challenges this season and if their new coach, Matt Elliott, has one task in 2013 it is to figure out how it all went so horribly wrong for the side last year.
