Behind enemy lines: Round 22

The Parramatta Eels have named their mandatory 21-man squad to face the St George Illawarra Dragons at ANZ Stadium on Saturday, August 11.

Despite their comprehensive win over the Gold Coast last weekend, coach Brad Arthur has undergone mass changes to his backline.

Corey Norman has been shifted to fullback, Clint Gutherson moves to the centre, Jarryd Hayne the wing while Bevan French has been named in the reserves.

Jaeman Salmon has been named at five-eighth to fill Norman's void, with Will Smith returning to the Eels' 17 on the interchange.
