Round 9 of the NRL 2014 competition was completed on Monday evening with the Eels’ victory over the Sharks.
After a turbulent start to the season, games are starting to follow 2013 Rankings.
My record of the nine Rounds to date is:
The Panthers and the Eels defeated higher ranked teams from 2013 in Round 9. They have defeated five and four higher ranked teams respectively this season.
The teams they defeated in Round 9, Newcastle and Cronulla, have lost five games each to lower ranked opponents.
