The Parramatta Eels will again be without fullback Bevan French for their Easter Monday clash against Wests Tigers with Clinton Gutherson named at the back.

As per last week's late change against the New Zealand Warriors, Brad Takairangi will partner Corey Norman in the halves, while Kirisome Auva'a retains his spot in the centres.

Frank Pritchard drops out of the 21-man squad with a foot injury — Tepai Moeroa replacing him in the starting side — while Daniel Alvaro returns to the interchange bench.

David Gower, George Jennings, Marata Niukore and Will Smith are reserves.

Kenny Edwards (suspension), Jeff Robson (calf), Rory O'Brien (hamstring) and Isaac De Gois (concussion) all remain unavailable, while Cameron King returns from injury in reserve-grade.

For Wests Tigers, Coach Ivan Cleary has named the same 17 that defeated the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville with Jack Littlejohn partnering Mitchell Moses in the halves.

Matt McIlwrick starts at hooker, with Jacob Liddle named on the interchange bench.

Joel Edwards, Justin Hunt, Jordan Rankin and Junior Tatola are reserves.

Matt Ballin (knee) and Luke Brooks (hamstring) remain unavailable for the match.
