See the Round Seventeen Eels Awards below.
Rebel Moment of the Week Award – Mitch Moses
The Round Seventeen Rebel Moment of the Week Award goes to Blue & Gold half Mitch Moses.
A calm and collected Mitch Moses stepped up in golden point, nailing a 25m field goal, kicking the Eels to victory.
The field goal capped of a strong performance for Moses, who stood up defensively making 20 tackles to go alongside his 75 run metres which also included a superb pass to put winger Bevan French in space to score and break the early stalemate.
Grappa Relentless Effort Award – Nathan Brown
The Parramatta Eels lock, Nathan Brown, has earnt himself the Grappa Relentless Effort Award for his performance on the field in Round 17.
Brown had a mammoth performance, with 246m from his 28 hit ups plus a relentless 43 tackles.
The forward earnt praise from Head Coach Brad Arthur, who had positive words for Brown after the game.
“There was a set right at the death where we got the seven tackles and he wanted the ball straight up, after we did all that work, and then he wanted the ball 3-4 tackles later.” Arthur said.
“He has real desire, real want, he is a winner and he is doing a great job for us.”
Pendle Hill Do Your Job Award – Cameron King
The Round 17 Pendle Hill Do Your Job Award goes to Blue & Gold Club debutant Cameron King.
The hooker spent 62 minutes on the field, finishing with 31 tackles.
“He did really well. We had an injury to Manu early, and we needed Kingy to stay there so we only had to make three changes in the first half,” Arthur said after the game of the Club debutants performance.
“He did really well because when we took him off, we probably could of left him there. I thought he was good.”
