When his team needed him to step up the most, Mitchell Moses did his job in the final minutes, taking control of the match and scoring.
The Eels finished 24-16 winners.
Dylan Brown put in a monster defensive effort to deny Chad Townsend just before the second half to equalise.
Speaking after the game, Andrew Jones asked where the defensive performance was coming from.
“Great mate, great, you bro, I’ve learned it from you, I’ve watched a few clips of you before,” Brown said during Nine’s coverage.
Jones replied. “When I worked with you, you couldn’t handle a baked dinner.”
“Stop it, maybe you were leaving, maybe it toughened me up,” Brown quipped.
