In 2017, when the Parramatta Eels win on the field, we will be announcing three awards presented to the players following the game.
The awards are:
· Rebel Moment of the Week Award
· Grappa Relentless Effort Award and
· Pendle Hill Meat Market Own Your Job Award
These awards are presented to the players as chosen by Eels Head Coach Brad Arthur and the Blue & Gold coaching staff in relation to how they meet the Eels standards and expectations.
See the Round Twenty One Eels Awards below.
Rebel Moment of Week Award – Bevan French
This week’s Rebel Moment of the Week Award goes to Blue & Gold fullback Bevan French.
The moment occurred in the 51st minute of the clash, with the Eels trailing 12-14, and the Broncos looking to regain control and extended their lead.
Broncos half Anthony Milford bombed the Eels try line from 40m out for their flying winger Jonus Pearson. Pearson won the jump for the ball, flying high over French to regain possession and charge towards the line, just 10m out. But in the one swift movement, French who was outjumped, swiftly pulled down the winger to halt his run towards the line, before the Eels cover defence arrived to stop a certain Broncos try.
French, who returned to fullback, finished the game with 121m from 14 runs, 6 tackles, two line breaks and one try.
Grappa Relentless Effort Award – Daniel Alvaro
This week’s Grappa Relentless Effort Award goes to Blue & Gold forward Daniel Alvaro.
Coming off the bench, Alvaro had a busy 44 minutes on the field, with 78m from his 8 runs along with 40 tackles, only just behind the top Eels tackle, Nathan Brown who finished with 43 tackles.
A workman like performance from the young forward.
Pendle Hill Meat Market Own Your Job Award – Mitch Moses
This week’s Pendle Hill Meat Market Own Your Job Award goes to Blue & Gold halfback Mitch Moses.
An all-around strong performance from the half who finished with one line break, three try assists, and five goals to go along with his 61m from his nine runs and 19 tackles.
A brave grubber, putting his body on the line, saw Moses kick for the Eels first try of the game before a superb no-look cut out pass three minutes later saw winger Kirisome Auva’a crossing untouched out wide.
