IT'S an all important local derby as two of the NRL's most dynamic teams go head-to-head in their traditional Easter Monday shootout at ANZ Stadium.
The Wests Tigers are off to 2018 on a flyer, while the Parramatta Eels are still looking to launch.
This Round 4 blockbuster also commemorates the Stay Kind initiative.
The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation launched the Stay Kind initiative in memory of Stuart Kelly, remembered for his continued support and kindness to his brother Thomas and to others.
Stay Kind is about kindness and respect towards all people, no matter who we are or how different we are.
The Stay Kind Cup Match and Day is proudly supported by the NRL, Channel 9, Wests Tigers and the Parramatta Eels.
So get the family involved and make the most of Easter Monday with an NRL belter!
