Parramatta and the Gold Coast square off in round three of the NRL Telstra Women's Premiership in an historic occasion for the Eels at CommBank Stadium.
The Eels went down to St George Illawarra last week but won't need any extra motivation on Sunday with a big crowd expected for the side's first-ever home game in Parramatta heartland.
The Titans bounced back from a first-round defeat to beat the Roosters in emphatic style and will will be out to spoil the party in Sydney's west.
Jamie Feeney's side improved their discipline with ball in hand and will go close to a result if they can do the same again on Sunday.
The clash features plenty of international star power with the battle of the fullbacks Botille Vette-Welsh and Evania Pelite worth the price of admission alone.

Kennedy Cherrington v Steph Hancock: A rising star against a respected veteran, two players at different stages of their career will go head-to-head in a match-up that promises to bring plenty of fireworks. Cherrington is known to get under the skin of her opponents and Hancock isn't one to take a backward step. Hancock is the fittest she's been in the NRLW and with Shannon Mato missing this week she'll be looking to lead the way for the side again on Sunday.
Both these sides lead the way for most dummy half runs to start the season. The Titans have made 48 to Parramatta's 40, well clear of next best Newcastle (26) and Dragons on 21.
