Easter Monday are always are topsy tervy games, apart from the opening of the stadium a few years ago there hasnt been a blow out for either side. Parras edge defence was horrible against Manly, unfortunately I think they get a few back this week. Moses short kicking game always kills us. If we can play with the same intensity that we did against the sharks we're a chance. Eels likely get the W but if we continue to build I'll be happy.

I am glad Jackson Hastings isn't playing this week.

The sight of him in a Tigers Jersey just give me the shivers after Easter Monday 2 years ago.

Yeah, I know how you feel KG.
Fatefully, Moses ain't playing for you guys either. That way, we don't have to look at him.

With Mitch Moses injured, the Eels will be honouring him by running out to ‘put your hands up in the air’.

It was one of the rare games where both sets of fans were walking home crying.

Parramatta becuase we lost to the hapless tigers.

And the tigers fans were crying tears of joy because they couldnt believe they didn't get there heartbroken again and actually won a game.

I still cant get over that game and how Parra blew it. Started poorly then came back, then you had Mitch Rein going from dummy half, making a half break then dropping the ball. I think that led to the Hastings field goal.

Gutherson is a hinderance at fullback and Parra would be better finding a new fullback and moving him somewhere else in the backs.

Prick of a match.

Mitch Rein was horrible never played another FG game again.

Moses missed a sitter FG 20m out from in front with a min to go which gave them a 7 tackle set and Hastings nailed his from 40m.

Even though we made the GF that year that game summed up why we just don't have a premiership winning Mentality. You don't lose those games at home.

Cartwright is no real loss, Tuilagi is probably better tbh (although that's not a huge feat). Shame Doorey is injured again, if he got a good fit run I think he'd be a good addition.

Moses is massive. I'm concerned if the Tigers play with the intensity they had last week...our kicking game with those halves isn't going to get us out of momentum swings.

im pretty sure he came on in like the 65th minute, turned it over twice in 5 minutes and was replaced hahaa

was great viewing as a wests fan

I thought cartwright had been great this year. Tuilagi is a weapon in the opposition 20, everywhere else hes useless

Moses a huge out. With brown playing 7 he may grow a leg and completely dominate, or he may think he has to manage/kick and go away from what makes him such a good player. He likes to run it on the 4th but he wont be able to as he'll want to be there to kick.

I gave us little to no chance with Moses playing, him being out does give us some though, the betting companies have moved the line 6 points.
