Following the Parramatta Eels Round 15 victory over the Canberra Raiders at Darwin’s TIO Stadium on Saturday 29 June, we want to know who the Blue & Gold Army thought was best on field!
There were plenty of strong on-field performances from various players including a double to Blake Ferguson, a monster effort from Manu Ma’u, a big effort up front from Junior Paulo and great impact from David Gower from the bench.
The Blue & Gold Army were celebrating Ferguson’s double, including an 85m intercept effort in the second half and the winger finished with 163m from 15 runs and four tackle breaks for his efforts.
Ma’u sparked the Eels into action with a solo individual try in the back end of the first half, but the back rower also finished with 79m from seven runs and a huge 43 tackles in defence.
Junior Paulo had a big 52minutes in the middle of the field, finishing with 161m from 15 runs, two tackle breaks and 23 tackles.
