Eels ladder position after Round 20

Ladies and gents, 

regardless of the constant dribble of the Eels playing like they are at the bottom of the table. Our Eels have the chance to end the regular season at 3rd, 4th or 5th place on the ladder after Round 20.

Yes, the last 2 months haven't been the most exciting in terms of attack, however, we all know we have points to burn and all it takes is a little bit more timing in our attack.

Last game against the Broncos we did score 5 tries, 6 actually with Henry Parernara tackling a teammate Fergy over the sideline and stopping a try. 

Anyway, we win against the Tigers and we are assured 4th position on the table. If the Roosters lose against the Rabbits, unlikely but still possible the Eels end up at 3rd place. A big if.

We lose against the Tigers we could end up in 5th place if the Raiders beat Sharks. If the Sharks beat Raiders then we end up in 4th position. 

Ok, the questions we have to ask yourself are:

  • were do end up on the ladder after Round 20?
  • who will be our opponent in the first week of the finals?
  • will we win or lose?
  • what will be the score?

  • 4th - Penrith - win - 22-14

  • Hate to say it but I have a sinking feeling that the Tigers will get up in Benji's farewell game and we will finish in 5th spot. 

  • I think we will beat tigers .  Usually do .  We will play penrith and we are a fair chance to get them.   Rather play them then any other too 5 side .   If Roosters -melb play that alliows the dream result for the grand final .  Sonny Bill , roosters going for 3 in a row and storm trying to send smith off a winner .   Seriously - script written .   

  • Worried about this Tigers game. Benji's and Lawrence's last game for the Tigers. The whole team is going to be extremely emotional and fired up. Tigers may leak points but they can definitely score them. They put on 22 points against the Storm which is no mean feat. 
    We really need to win this game. Finishing 4th is vital. 

  • 5th. Cronulla. Win. 20-12

    • If Cronulla win we finish minimum 4th. 

      • I think he means we come in 5th and then play Cronulla in the semi and win 20-12


        • That’s right 

          • Ah sorry. Got it. 

            • Fcuk me it took you long enuff
