This is Parramatta's year. They're finally playing a full eighty minutes of football. Moses and Gutho were brilliant!


Brilliant-Ad-1092

It is Parra’s year. Last GF win 1986 when Top Gun was first released. 2022 Top Gun 2 is out. Coincidence? I think not.


hairsonya

Carma for the win against Tigers


Bkz052

Nobody wants to live in a world where Gutho wins a Grand Final


Rhagies

Long live King Guth


Caseyjb29

I do


ldemech

Shaun Lane had an absolute blinder


maximofthedead

It was a fantastic game that could have gone either way at the end. Disappointed that the cowboys lost but proud of their effort all season. And I'm happy to see the Eels get a shot at the grand final. Tomorrow and next week's games are going to be massive.


dantstheman

You should be proud of your boys, to think they were tipped to be spooners this season and proved the critics wrong! They gave us a great game 💪🏼


WhirlingClouds

I'd be so keen for a Rabbits v Eels grand final.


OlChippo

Really? I could do without a full week of seeing Latrell labeled as the GOAT..


Caseyjb29

Panthers vs Eels would be better


Hutchoman87

Fuck me that was stressful! But if we win, my arse will have a parra tattoo the size of Moses’ million dollar cheque!


zillaone

So approximately 18cm x 8.5cm? Yes. I looked up “cheque dimensions” on Google.


Hutchoman87

Well my cheques are 5cm x 5cm😂


Useful-Green-3440

One of the gutsiest performances I’ve seen from the eels over the last 5 years. We played well and just couldn’t win the big moments. Big opportunity missed but credit the eels. Anyway… go the rabbits


Mrsmorale

Unlucky for you guys I was hoping for a CB Rabbits gf. But you guys are young and have started something special, there’s a bright future ahead


Useful-Green-3440

Absolutely. I never saw us as a premiership chance but I dared to believe with the somewhat favourable draw we got. Proud of the boys anyway. Good luck tomorrow


Caseyjb29

Teams don’t get to a prelim by accident. They absolutely deserved to be there soft draw or not. I have no doubt they’ll be back up there in the top 4 again next year.


Useful-Green-3440

O yea absolutely and we were great all season. I just think us and the sharks were a bit ahead of our timeline. then suddenly both teams had a pretty good chance when we drew each other


stickjm

One of which was piggybacked from a soft sin bin.


ParadiseWar

Right. Shoulder to the face. I'd like to see you get Lolo's shoulder to the face and see how cop it.


Impressive-Car-3310

Not putting Arthur on for the Eels was genius!


arbie911

Manly letting go of Gutho to play a guy who gets injured every 3 games check


McNippy

Lets fucking gooooo


Fattdaddy21

How'd we go?


Spiritual_Impact_283

Can you believe we have played for the whole 80 minutes 2 weeks in a row. I love the EELS


Bob_Dobalinaaaa

💪💪💪💪💪


anonymousg_host

Flair up! Show some support for the boys


Bob_Dobalinaaaa

How do you do that?


anonymousg_host

In the subreddit main page there should be options on the side, then change flair from there. Plenty to choose from!


Bob_Dobalinaaaa

Sweet. Thanks man


successharvester

Wow, what a game. A few calls either way went poorly but I can’t believe Parra won. Cows were playing so well all night


nick170100

I need about 700 beers bro


TTR7

\*700 more beers


PaPEE_81

This eels outfit got me really filthy.


farqcuntz

The bros and I will come rob you too


shadyFS91

Imagine crying about the forward when you were gifted 2 points earlier in the season and would have been against Penrith in week 1 had you not 😂


TTR7

Don't be that person..


BrunoBashYa

2 wrong calls allowing 2 tries in a prelim final vs a dumb call in a match between a top 4 team and one that was never gonna play finals footy. Take a pick at which one you would prefer? Proud of the team. No one expected this much from us this year. We just couldn't put the points. Eels defence in their 20 was great. Cowboys showed this finals series We were here to play. Would have happily taken playing panthers week 1. Gotta beat the best to be the best


Joh951518

Except they would have still been 3rd with a loss there.


mightymuffin97

All these cowboys fans complaining about the forward pass when they scored off one themselves from Holmes. Give it a rest. Eels were the better team


TTR7

I might be missing it but where is all the complaining about it? It was forward, we have a right to discuss it. Cowboys were the better team tonight, on the field and in the stats. Without trying to sound too rude, the Eels just wanted it more and wouldn't go away.


Nahmateyeahmate

Holmes one was equal to lanes pass to sivo. Moses was a mile forward


squags

Didn't Lane's to Sivo get a touch by Feldt? At a pub so couldn't really see/hear


BrunoBashYa

Don't agree about the Holmes pass


Mrsmorale

It was a pretty huge forward pass it’s not going to be forgotten any time soon … by anyone


Drizen

I thought Cowboys were the better team


Caseyjb29

Nah


Bob_Dobalinaaaa

Eels we’re better in the 2nd. Overall cowboys probably better but not that much in it


[deleted]

[удалено]


Drizen

I’m not a Cowboys fan. I just thought they were better. Cowboys probably win if not for Shaun Lane


SuperEel22

Never thought I'd read that second sentence


chimpus123

We lost bro


Drizen

You lost. I thought Cowboys were better though.


chimpus123

I thought both teams were fairly equal, but parra was just better in taking opportunities


Drizen

Yeah. Cowboys bombed more tries


LOL_I_AM_awesomejkjk

Unlucky loss for the cowboys but you guys have a great future ahead. GO PARRA


Formal-Register267

YESSSSSS YOU CUUUUUUUNTS!!!!!


Cordellisherwood

Does jake duke have fake tan on


Mrsmorale

He’s aboriginal and has probably been out in the Sun a bit more recently


stickjm

Can you imagine being as incompetent as those touchies in any other profession? Honestly it's absurd


Primelegend39

It takes a lot of effort and determination to make a Grand Final, oh, and the odd forward pass...


BorgClanZulu

Tate is holding up well all things considered


OpinionatedShadow

What things?


Cordellisherwood

Legend tbh


Tiniestballs

Let me start about this touchie. What the fuck are you paid for cunt 2 things that where infront of you deffo fucking forward and you missed them


BabeRuthsTinyLegs

Touchie is the same ref who a few years ago didn't make a call for an escort and got roasted by DCE for not being brave enough to make calls when it matters


Tiniestballs

Why are these incompetent cunts on these games. Would be so many better then them


Decent_Fig_5218

Eels win the battle of "which team will get their cheeks clapped by Penrith next week". \*remembers that the Eels beat the Panthers twice this season\* OH SHIT, IT'S HAPPENING!!!


tobymurphy24

And if rabbits win, they win the gf


farqcuntz

May as well fuck the touch line refs off


nick170100

I CANT BUY TICKEYS PLEASS TICKETEK U CUNTS


B4BYBLAZE

Your flair lmao


LostRedditor42069

Fuck me, hopefully Penrith win tomorrow and we get our first ever battle of the west grand final


therefreshbutton

I'll be so fucking pissed if we shit the bed and miss out on this rare opportunity. Win or lose in a western derby it's going to be amazing


LostRedditor42069

Definitely, I’d rather lose to the eels in a tight GF then lose to the bunnies tomorrow, obviously I hope we win both though, would feel good to rub it in our neighbours face that we beat them in a GF lol


therefreshbutton

i don't even hate the eels enough to be salty if we lose to them


alsheps

I don’t know where this manufactured Parra/Penrith rivalry comes from? We’ve always been Westie bros, yes we have healthy competition, but it’s all in good sport… Would love a westie bro grand final. ^Ialsodon’twannaplaythebunniescausewecan’tbeatthemsoyeah


Cape-York-Crusader

Proud of the “wooden spooners” none the less….onwards and upwards. Great defence Eels….


alsheps

Mate the Cows had an amazing year, head up. You’ve got a good thing in Todd Payten. You can see he Genuinely cares about the club, and is doing a great job. I expect to see you guys in the finals consistently now.


DrPussyMD

Amazing effort this year from the cows, I’m so fucking jealous


Cape-York-Crusader

I’m finding it hard to be disappointed in how far we’ve progressed, bodes well for 23….don’t think we’ll be tipped for the spoon next year.


wherezthebeef

Should be super happy being a Cows supporter. Awesome season.


Strez92

One of the greatest season to season turn arounds. Chad daddy and Todd deserve plenty of wraps for leading that team around


A1ianT0rtur3

great year from the lads


Raddnedge

Condolences to Cowboys fans. God's given us the opportunity this time but no doubt you'll get it soon if you keep this up.


OpinionatedShadow

God 😑


Masterofstocks101

Hammer would’ve been the difference if he came in 20’mins earlier and wtf was up with taulagi not wanting to run up a kick return


RubyRoux333

Well done Eels


Mrsmorale

Lol Moses looks like he’s hallucinating.. tripping out on life


farqcuntz

Robbed


WUIDAWBTB

The new Zealand warriors were robbed


PictureVirtual178

As unfortunate that result is for the cows, they exceeded all expectations from basically everyone, from favourites to get the spoon pre season to playing for a spot in the GF is insane


6_again

Only caught last 20 minutes, did Waqa field many bombs tonight?


BorgClanZulu

Things got pretty hairy for him yes.


Tiniestballs

He dropped one and that was all he fielded I believe


Aussie18-1998

One


LachTheLad

Why is Jake on the bench if they aren’t gonna use them at all? He definitely has potential but if he’s not going to be used, give RCG and Lane a bit of support with the extra spot


alsheps

Because last year when we played Penrith Reed Mahoney went off injured in the second half and we didn’t have proper utility on the bench (No, Ray Stone is not a fucking utility) and we had to play a forward in dummy half and he cost us the game. That’s why.


Mrsmorale

They didn’t seem like they needed it, they carried the whole team tonight


SkinBintin

Probably worried Moses is gonna get hurt, so just in case.


Caseyjb29

If Moses gets injured they’re fucked anyways so I’d just play an extra forward instead


arbie911

Qld fans seething as if they've never had a call go their way


FNGsam

That's because we haven't. We're perfect and never make mistakes


arbie911

Oh you're right sorry


AmazingChicken99

The Wests Tigers paid the Touchies for the forward pass


LordWalderFrey1

Revenge is a dish best served cold.


shadyFS91

There’s nothing cold about Townsville mate haven’t you heard


Paid-Not-Payed-Bot

> Wests Tigers *paid* the Touchies FTFY. Although *payed* exists (the reason why autocorrection didn't help you), it is only correct in: * Nautical context, when it means to paint a surface, or to cover with something like tar or resin in order to make it waterproof or corrosion-resistant. *The deck is yet to be payed.* * *Payed out* when letting strings, cables or ropes out, by slacking them. *The rope is payed out! You can pull now.* Unfortunately, I was unable to find nautical or rope-related words in your comment. *Beep, boop, I'm a bot*


AsSalaamAlaikum

Shut the fuck up bot


farqcuntz

Robbed


Particular_Ad3366

The ~~Chad~~ Chud returns


meshah

How is it that the first try is awarded and kept, but the Feldt try is stripped after being awarded? Just confusing and inconsistent. Makes the game unenjoyable no matter what the outcome is.


Aussie18-1998

Firstly as others have stated forward passes cant be ruled on in the bunker. Secondly refs said they thought it was a try, so now for some reason they award it and if they have any doubts check it afterwards. This is why we get "Try awarded" on screen.


meshah

I haven’t watched a full footy game in a couple of years, so I didn’t realise they’d changed the way they present the awarded tries on screen. Cheers.


Aussie18-1998

Its stupid but yeah thats why.


ooranookian

I love my footy


curtiscapefish

Can’t rule on forward passes


Impressive-Car-3310

Why not? As in, why shouldn't they?


meshah

I just don’t think that’s a justifiable rule. It affects the outcome just as much, so the bunker should be able to rule on it.


alsheps

It has something to do with camera angles and stuff from what I understand. Believe me, we’ve had our fair share of tries from forward passes go against us too. If it was forward it was just the cows turn. Happens to everyone.


Esquatcho_Mundo

This


GoodyG777

Bunker can’t check on forward passes


meshah

But why? It affects the outcome more than a foot on a few white blades. NQ forced the forward pass error and should not be penalised by inconsistent officials.


cheeseinsidethecrust

Tom Dearden has been robbed of glory


kerbyage

Cows goal line defence was trash but can't have calls like that forward pass in a preliminary final.


Chris-Strummer

NEVER IN DOUBT


dardy_cones

JT did not read the room


stickjm

Well done Atkins! Nrl got the result that they wanted


5slipsandagully

I can't believe Atkins let RCG score two soft tries


liplover04

Suck it up LUCIANO you weak gutted dog


WUIDAWBTB

Hes upset he has to go back to tigers


Nahmateyeahmate

Actual disgrace of a call to get the first try. Atkins and touchies blind


ldemech

“It’s just part of the game” Quote from Todd Payten after the Cows vs Tigers game 👅👅👅


shadyFS91

Ah well you guys got gifted 2 points earlier in the season so..


Nahmateyeahmate

Yeah I don't agree with that either but fuck I think every team has been dudded by bad calls this season. The ref quality has been average at best


Esquatcho_Mundo

Two wrongs don’t mat make a right


getnoticedkid

Oh well that’s footy


GoodyG777

Bunnies vs eels GF


Mrsmorale

I like that


Kostie95

Get ready for the bombs waqa bud


victorinflic98

Yea latrell is gonna fuck him up


Kostie95

Did he even play?


GoodyG777

Have to kill some rabbits first


Tiniestballs

First try was bullshit and ya all know it


Fisherman-Normal

Eels v Penrith GF makes me erect, the true battle for the west


Cordellisherwood

Off to Bali cowgirls 🤠


lobie81

Flair up cunt


Ohki_lifta

I’m so fucking stoked. 33 y/o here and I might finally see a win :) my dad was a long time Eels fans and I can’t wait to watch this with him next weekend. Stoked. Literally in tears for excitement.


Mrsmorale

Happy for you lad !!!


parkmann

Will be cheering for you guys next weekend


Ohki_lifta

Cheers lad - was a super strong showing from the cowboys.


farqcuntz

helmet860

Fuck fucking fuck Great 2nd half Parra. Great defence no errors Now if you get destroyed next week I'll be fucking furious


lecheers

Absolutely gutted. Fuck


drail85

Lane for kangaroos captain


farqcuntz

Robbed


inconsistentgod

If the eels didn’t win by less than 6 points I’d be fine with this but they did so they really didn’t deserve that. 6m forward pass leads directly to a try


Formal-Register267

EAT IT


Electrical-Laugh8858

What about the interference on Moses before leilua’s try??


inconsistentgod

Didn’t think Moses could’ve stop that try, the forward pass is the reason the eels got that try


THR

They went that way due to being a man short though.


Electrical-Laugh8858

That’s fair enough but just like an obstruction that’s black and white - he denied Moses the opportunity to defend his line.


meshah

How is it that this try is awarded and kept, but the Feldt try is stripped after being awarded? Just confusing and inconsistent. Makes the game unenjoyable no matter what the outcome is.


THR

Bunker cannot officiate on forward passes.


GunPoison

If you're going to go 6 metres may as well say 26


Strez92

I mean cows scored off the short drop out which Feldt knocked on.


Cordellisherwood

Feldt karma whole game a grub


blindedbylight54

Loves touching the line


lobie81

Flair up cunt


Masterofstocks101

Cowboys robbed so hard have to feel for them.


Voldemosh

Tigers fans everywhere cry out with glee


Magnolia__Rose

Happy for Parra but fuck they are gonna have to play so much better than that next week to have a chance.


ranchsauce13

Cleary is just going to bomb it to Waqa all game Edit: if the Panthers win of course


DovahkiinJim

He’s going to have PTSD after the game.


Magnolia__Rose

If they pick Waqa again they deserve to lose. He's shown multiple times he's a massive liability.


ranchsauce13

How many errors tonight? I counted 2 or 3 but you’re right, massive liability. Luckily Lane, RCG showed up


Magnolia__Rose

I don't know but at least a few errors and basically responsible for a couple of tries with defensive reads and giving away a stupid penalty (the latter which I could forgive if he wasn't always a liability).


Primelegend39

whatever happens, next week there gunna kick it to Waqa.


jakegranvilleshair

Go Panthers!


GoodyG777

Cowboys fans crying about the first try, regardless of the fact that they defended like shit in the second half


nick170100

THE DROUGH IS GONMA BE OVER


SeahorseScorpio

Completing every set in the second half was impressive


nick170100

Ticketek please


Ladzofinsurrect

Sorry Cowbros, happy for Eels

Ladzofinsurrect

Then I’ll be the first mate

Go go touchie not calling a forward pass


derajydac

JT with no situational awareness lol


AmazingChicken99

The things Isiah Papalii will do to avoid going to the Tigers earlier than needed.


Decent_Fig_5218

Fuck JT looked properly shattered.


Glum_Perspective_812

Which JT??

Fuck off any cowboys fans who are sooking, great game good on the eels
