Sivo, a marked man for the Eels
September 11, 2019 5:08 am
Maika Sivo will be a marked man for the Eels against the Broncos this weekend as the NRL head into week one of the competitions elimination final.
Rugby league experts in Australia believe for the Eels to win they need to test the Brisbane flanks early and often to ensure danger-men Sivo on the left and Blake Ferguson on the right get plenty of clean early ball.
According to nrl.com each of these sides relies heavily for points on their main attacking strike weapon.
For the Eels it is halfback Mitch Moses, who boasts an NRL-high 24 try assists while his Brisbane counterpart Anthony Milford has arguably improved his form since switching from the halves to fullback and leads the way for Brisbane with 13 assists.
The Eels will host the Broncos on Sunday at 6pm.
On Friday at 9:45pm the Roosters play Rabbitohs.
There will be two games played on Saturday with the Raiders meeting the Storm at 7:30pm and at 9:45pm the Sea Eagles takes on the Sharks.
