Also, on the rivalry - the atmosphere was without doubt the most volatile I've ever been part of. It was rabid in there. Afterwards though? Outside the stadium, on the light rail, etc - all just good-natured banter. Didn't see anything even close to looking like a fight breaking out.
Yes there was a definite edge to the crowd yesterday, it felt like it could just blow up at anytime but thankfully it didn't where we were sitting. Banter outside the ground was all good natured apart from two very drunk Roosters supporters i saw coming out of the Cricketers Arms hotel at about 7 pm, every second word was F or C
