Eels Roosters game day thread

This game shows how much more recruitment we need up front. They have been mauled by the Roosters pack.

All it proves is how much fitter we need to be and get numbers into tackles to slow the play down. That's what the good teams do.

Our first impact is often good but we don't follow through and then get penalised or on the back foot.

We could have gone into halftime 14 or 16 to 4 but straight after we score we just made several more errors - which had nothing to do with the Roosters playing good!!

Stupid lose pass for a Roosters try and Moeroa who rarely offloads decides to attempt it with 3 defenders on him.

This is where Norman just lacks a bit of game management compared to the elite halves. After our first try he should have try the 5th tackle kick (rather then smith) and find touch to slow the ball down. Instead we give away a 7th tackle set and pretty much have 3-4 sets for the rest of the game.

James Vaughn would of been great. BA undervalues a good prop perhaps im not sure why we not chased one

And some on here think we have the forward pack to compete...... come on.

Defence is an absolute disgrace, we struggle against any half decent teams!

Missed the first half and just watched the "highlights". Seriously think that 3 tries (2 roosters and ours) could have been called back for forward passes.

we probably need to score 2 converted tries first 15-20 minutes of the 2nd half to have a chance
make it 28-16, then we never know , funnier things have happened as weve seen this weekend

but I doubt it, we are doomed in this one. hope we can win the 2nd half at least..
