Game Day Blog - Eels vs Cowboys

I think for Eels fans, the most exciting thing to watch during tonight's game vs the Cows is big Smokin' Joe playing in Eels colours. Personally, I can't wait to see him line up for us and play the Cows for the second time for him in a week.

Another intriguing thing to see is if the Eels can maintain the form shown vs the Rabbits last week.

A couple of milestones tonight. Ogden plays his 50th game and Hodgson his 150th. We're back at Commbank on a Friday night and let's hope the throw together forward pack can dominate the Cow's pack.

I'm really looking forward to this game and hopefully we can put a score on these guys.

So, who wins and by what margin?

  • Good morning Grunta . Did you set your alarm this morning? Good to see you back on deck early on game day . LOL .                                                            I think EELS coach and his boys know their playing for the 2 points tonight first and foremost so will have a simpler game plan than was required to beat old time foe and competition leader the Bunny Wabbits .           There will be some moments we will get tested by a team that is desperate to prove they still have it in them after last year's preliminary final loss to our boys and perform better than thier average at best form for most games this year. Despite that should we go into half time not far behind , or even better in front , on the scoreboard , then expect Parra to score at least a further 20 points in the second half ......................................................................................  Parramatta Eels 36 d. NQ Cowboys 12 .                    MAN OF MATCH : Will Penisini 

    • Hodges off now the game starts 

  • Can't really see the Cowboys being a complete pushover tonight.

    They may be missing players also, but they were disgraced last week & Payten doesn't seem like the kind of guy to see the funny side in that scoreline. They would have been torn apart this week & have the extra motivation of the Prelim Final last season.

    Big test for our forwards, but regardless of how the battle in the middle goes, our entire spine has to step up, they have no excuses. If its not happening, they need to make it happen.

    Eels 28-14, but honestly, just hope we get the 2 points and move into the bye, don't care how ugly a win it is.


  • I am confident we will win. Cowboys will be better than last week simply because they have too. But I know some people here will be angry unless we win by 60+

    Eels 36 - Cowboys 6 MoM Penisini if he is up against the debutant. Otherwise Moses MoM

  • Eels 48-4 ...MoM D Brown.

    If they manage to lose this one, the crowd should throw food scraps and half finished drinks at them.

  • The loss of our entire forward pack is a big loss.

    On the other hand, our entire forward pack has gone missing at times when we play teams we should beat easily. 

    Hopefully, this forward pack will want to prove themselves and will roll through the Cowboys. 

    I can't see anything but a win for us in this one.

    Parra by 60+

    MOM Moses

  • Eels by 18 points. 

    MOM - Hopgood. 

  • I think Hopgood will show his leadership qualities tonight, and drag our pack into the contest, leading from the front.

    26 - 22.
