The Parramatta Eels suffered a 24-10 defeat to the Sydney Roosters at Bankwest Stadium on Saturday 20 June in Round Six of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
Whilst the Blue & Gold didn’t come away with the two points, we still want to know who the Blue & Gold Army thought was the best Eels’ player on the field in Round Six.
UPDATE** Following 48 hours of voting, and nearly 2000 submissions, Eels centre Michael Jennings claimed 23% of the votes as the best Eels player on ground!
Eels captain and fullback Clint Gutherson never game up, topping the run metres with 254 including 1 line break, 1 tackle break, 55 post contact metres.
The left edge of Maika Sivo (147m from 18 runs) and Michael Jennings (141m from 15 runs) both crossed for crucial four pointers in the second half to bring the Eels back into the game.
Back rowers Shaun Lane (150m from 15 runs and 20 tackles) and Ryan Matterson (146m from 15 runs, 6 tackle breaks and 52 tackles) were busy on the edges whilst lock Nathan Brown was tireless with 191m from 19 runs, 5 offloads, 1 tackle break and 35 tackles.
