It's the battle of the best in the west when the Parramatta Eels tackle their western Sydney rivals, the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, in a classic bout of Friday night footy at ANZ Stadium.

The boys in blue and gold will be hoping for a repeat of their 22-12 win over the Bulldogs in round 14, but with Des Hasler's Bulldogs desperate to stay within the top eight, the Eels will have a tough fight on their hands.

This fierce contest is for the Bandaged Bear Cup, celebrating the hard work and dedication of staff and volunteers at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
