Parramatta At Home Against Canterbury parramatta will play its sec 0od match of the season at Counberland Oval when it meets Canterbury - Bankstown on Saturday. The club has already played two matches at Sydney Cricket Ground, and its only home game was a draw against Wests. It will be interesting to see if the team can continue its un beaten sequence on the home ground. Last season Parramatta went through the competition with out losing a match at the Oval. The Blue and Golds are a dif ferent team when playing at home. On many occasions they have thrilled supporters with whirl wind finishes to turn certain de feat into victory. The team should be at almost full strength for Saturday's fix ture. A good win on Saturday may secure the team another match, at S.C.G. before the end of the first round. The team will be: C. Schom berg, D. Graham, I. Johnston, M. Wallace, R. Trudgett, L. Thompson, D. Regan, B. Mann, R. Hobbs, G. Robertson, P. Mc Carroll, M. Wilson, one to be added.
