Who will win Eels vs Tigers?

The numbers tell a damning story as we look at this contest. The Eels have won 5 games and the Tigers 0, but the story runs deeper than that.

The Eels have racked up 150 points with some blistering attack, whereas the Tigers have just 42, with a top score of 16. Defensively, the numbers are similar (102 conceded for the Eels and 106 for the Tigers), but it's that ability to score and create space that is a huge difference.

The Eels should be able to consolidate their position in the top 4 and these matches are always a test of the maturity level of good teams. Can they bank the games they are expected to?

We anticipate they'll answer in the affirmative this weekend.
