    If the eels wanted a home game they should have won more games. I would be salty if we finished 4th and lost to the storm and had to travel to Sydney because Parra gave a hiding to the broncos in their downtime from the teams main gig of sinking money into the pokies

    Or as it turned out, shoulda lost to Manly and ended up on better side of the draw.

    Mind you, that'd have meant we wouldn't have got the result we got on the weekend, which made my season. If we go down to the Storm, us Eels fan will always have the replay against the Donkeys to watch to ease the pain.

    Parra just have to target the edges.

    Addo-Carr - lost the game for his team last week
    Olam - average
    Chambers - shit
    Vunivalaids - overrated grub, possibly less coordinated than Ravalololol

    The missing Broncos is absolute quality.
    Also I'm a lil concerned about Manly. Ol' mate looks like he will go off early.

    Not only that, the 2nd placed side (Panthers) lost to Balmain and Raiders too.

    Souths in '89 were 9 points clear of the eventual premiers after 22 rounds, and 8 clear of the runners up. Something went seriously wrong in late '89 because they were well beaten by both, and got the spoon the following year. They would not make the finals again until 2007.

    Was it the Souths wing Ross Harrington who had a complete brain meltdown when the Raiders kicked towards him, and he fluffed it every time? I think he got hooked well before HT.

    Edited: You were correct. I was thinking of Steve Mavin but his was in 1987.

    He had a shocker against the Raiders in the 1987 semis. He went so bad he was replaced during the first half. He felt so bad about his performance he left the ground at halftime and watched the second half of the game on TV at the Cauliflower Hotel in Redfern.

    As to 1989, part of Souths problem was they kept picking Ian Roberts to play after he'd comeback cold from a 17 week layoff due to a major injury (iirc groin) and the kid who'd played his spot andd one well whilst he was out, Mark Lyons, was left out of their first finals game against Balmain. Lyons was the selected on the reserves bench against Canberra. It completely disrupted the team's chemistry as Ian Roberts was nowhere near match fit.
