Taylor says Roosters will find it tough against Parra Eels

ROOSTERS assistant Jason Taylor will relish the challenge of coaching against his former club, the Eels, at Parramatta Stadium tonight.

Taylor played 26 games for the blue and gold in 2001, as well as coaching them for 10 wins from 16 games in 2006.

He knows the Eels will be keen to bounce back from the 50-0 hammering the Bondi club gave them in round four.

"We put a big score on them last time and they won the following the week," Taylor said.

"They had a big score put on them in their last game so they go back home - to where they've played well - and I think we'll be in for a really tough match."
