    A bit childish, but I'll buy it.
    I think Boromir would win, because I have the impression that the Men of Gondor are a bit more capable in melée combat and swordsmanship, whereas the Men of Rohan prefer spears and bows. But it's hard to say.

    I think Boromir would win. He seems to be more warrior-like.

    Dependes on the contest does it not?

    Are the two combatants fighting on foot with swords, or mounted on horse with lances?

    I don't see Boromir as much of a equestrian

    Let me know

    Legoman, I think right now, Eomer is dead too, right?:)
    I guess Boromir would win, since the men of Gondor where a bit more strong and better in combat. Just a bit.:cool:

    But Eomer is ace, and he's got a cool horse. Come on. NO I'm sorry even if they're both alive Eomer still would win, think of when Frodo boots him after he's invisible, Boromir goes flying, he's a big wimp.
    (well he's big anyway, half right)

    In the Tournaments of 3016, Borimir defeated the younger Eomer, but was later defeated by Theodred in the final by a point. ;)

    Seriously, you would have to pick a point in time and the parameters of contest. At the time of the events leading up to the War of the Ring, Eomer was 28 years old compared to Boromir who was 41. In melee experience, Boromir would have the upper hand, but on horse combat, Eomer would likely have an edge.
