    Did Dugan pass to Katoa once during the game? Selfish prick was intent on dying with the ball

    reckon the sharks win that one if anyone else played instead of Moylan. Playing him in conditions like that is madness. Completely negates the minimal skills he has

    Damn, that's a shame - he had such a lustrous head of hair.

    But at least neither of our clubs are being coached by Stephen "Longface" Kearney.

    The goal kicking and an awful defensive line in them conditions in the middle for Parras 2 tries. Gotta be alot stronger than that playing nrl

    Yeah, I don't disagree.

    And I truly believe that - despite nabbing wins in 4 of our last 5 games - we are making up the numbers.

    Won't know until it comes to the crunch tbh. And I'm surely not making a call either way based on a game played under Niagara Falls.

    But I think every side has down periods during a season, and I'm much preferring these shit wins in our slump than our historical bed-shitting

    The equal best defense is somehow making up the numbers?

    We've been fortunate, imo.

    Our defence is brilliant, but it is our inability to score points that has me worried.

    I will take a win any day of the week - but our form over the last month has been average, at best.

    Ball to your <90kg winger within 10m of the touch line while playing on a slip n slide ... I'm ok with not doing that.

    But the Panthers were able to scrap wins over the Titans and Cowboys but are not average..

    Sharks haven't beaten a top 8 team but were on fire. I would take being equal second with the Storm any day of the week..

    In my opinion, Penrith are improving.

    I believe we have stagnated.

    Our defence is still bloody good, but our attack is pretty ordinary.

    What a fun game to watch. Haven't seen a game played in such conditions for a long time. It took me back to being a kid playing footy in the rain, getting smashed and sliding like 10 metres along the ground.

    Not much between the teams given the conditions, but I thought the Eels were the better side esp in the last 15 or so minutes. If it was a dry track, I reckon the Sharks would have won.

    Eels snake another misleading win on the back of the refs and because Sharks can't kick a goal.

    Sharks also can't tackle. They are a roster of arm grabbers and they need to blow the whole thing up and start again.

    Neither team would have beaten the Titans on yesterday’s form.

    we used to be able to score points easily and let in big numbers too. It’s swung the other way. Hopefully we can sort the attack out but I’m impressed with our scramble defence

    I agree - we have defended very well.

    I'm worried about our ability to score points, though.
