Post match celebrations.


Beaver's away! Northern Eagles lock Steve Menzies is streaks ahead on his way to score in this photo now known as "the Beaver shot".......

....... Northern Eagles players celebrate the Steve Menzies try. Is that Parramatta hooker Brad Drew not wanting any truck with the celebration in the top photo?
Northern Eagles skipper Geoff Toovey looks to get a ball out wide.
Have the Eagles got a sports tape company as a sponsor? Geoff Toovey shows off his traditional head strapping.....
..... while a Northern Eagles trainer applies some more strapping to a player in the in goal area. 
Referee Steve "New York" Clark debates a Northern Eagles try with his Touch Judge and presumably the Video Referee. It was no try.
Parramatta didn't have the game their own way with the Eagles playing a lot better since their last appearance on ErkSports against the Cowboys. 

"Should I place the ball on the line now? No one will notice!" Close but no donut for the Eagles this time.
The Eels win a scrum deep in their red zone.

Ugly Men of League time is fast approaching. Will Eagles prop Mark O' Meley (top) and Eels hooker Brad Drew (bottom) make the team filled with Ugly players? Stay tuned to the Radio 2UE/4BC Talking League Team each weekend between 12-6pm to find out.
Eagles lock Steve Menzies played strongly but it was not good enough to prevent Parra from taking the match.
More celebrations for Parramatta after another try.
Parramatta halfback Jason Taylor lines up another shot at goal.
It is coming up to crunch time for crouching Eagle, former Tiger John Hopoate. 
The Northern Eagles have probably realized at this point in their own in goal that they are no hope for the 2001 Semi Finals anymore.
