Following the Parramatta Eels 58-0 victory over the Brisbane Broncos at Bankwest Stadium in the Elimination Final yesterday afternoon, we want to know who the Blue & Gold thought was best on ground!
There were plenty of stand out performances across the entire Blue & Gold line up with strong attacking performances by Mitch Moses, Dylan Brown and Maika Sivo who all crossed for two tries.
With the team completing the game with 66% possession and a 82% completion rate, the Blue & Gold had a mammoth 2,107 run metres compared to just 813 run metres to the Broncos. Forward Daniel Alvaro led the way with a game high 220m from his 22 runs whilst Clint Gutherson remained busy at fullback with 206m whilst centre Waqa Blake finished with 201m.
In a game where there was a stronger focus with ball in hand, Reed Mahoney topped the tackle count with 26 tackles but he also finished the game with two try assists and two line break assists.
Maika Sivo topped the tackle breaks with eight, whilst Junior Paulo (5), Clint Gutherson (4) and Blake Ferguson (3) also proved hard to handle.
Tepai Moeroa also impressed from the bench with 164m from 15 runs, his first try of the season and 11 tackles during his 38 minutes on the field.
