Friday's win over the Broncos was not only a gutsy effort from the Parramatta side. 

It's propelled them into top-four discussions after winning five on the run, but also marks their biggest winning streak since the fairytale of 2009.

The Eels have a reasonably comfortable run to the finals, with games against the Bulldogs, Knights, Titans, Broncos and Rabbitohs.

2009 saw the side work their way from eighth place into a grand final appearance. 

The Eels are currently sitting in sixth position, but are on equal points with the Broncos in fourth. The only issue remains their for and against differential, which is the only negative number (-4) in the top eight.
