Hayne back at fullback for Eels

Parramatta coach Stephen Kearney has resisted the urge to leave Jarryd Hayne at five-eighth, with the NSW Origin star named at fullback for Saturday night's NRL game against Penrith.

Kearney had been expected to stick with Hayne at second receiver after he excelled when thrust into the frontline in Friday's breakthrough win over Wests Tigers.

But the return of halfback Jeff Robson from a hamstring complaint has caused a reshuffle, with Casey McGuire going back to five-eighth, Hayne in the No.1 jumper and Luke Burt to the wing.

Eels' skipper Nathan Hindmarsh will play his 300th NRL game at Centrebet Stadium, becoming the 16th player overall to reach the landmark and just the seventh to do so with the one club.
