The moment is here. After 11 weeks of hard work, injuries, Origin surprises and trade after trade, we finally have a winner for the 2017 Renegades Eliminator! 

It all came down to Anthony Reynolds and his team RNGD tigersharks pRt up against Liam Doyle and RNGD Elbanditos.

First, lets have a look at the players that both teams contained: 

No surprises here with most of these guys easily considered keepers. Interesting that both guys were running both Leilua and RTS but when it comes to the CTR and WFB positions, trading at this time of year really is a luxury.

Now we get down to the nitty gritty. Unique players. This is where it all counts.

Anthony used the loop hole to full effect on his vice-captain Paul Gallen, benching Jason Taumalolo which meant he actually came out of the 'same player' stakes ahead, but with Liam's captain still to play.

As it turned out, Liam also had a good captaincy option in Simon Mannering but he couldn't quite match Gallen's effort meaning that Anthony would maintain a slight advantage.

From here it was POD central and I guess you could say that in the end it all came down to the fantastic Friday night effort of Nathan Cleary who set a new NRL Fantasy record of 126 points, and pushed Anthony Reynolds and his team RNGD tigersharks  pRt to victory! Congratulations to Anthony for winning the inaugural Renegades Eliminator and taking home that cool hard cash!
