    There normally is, but for some reason they didn’t put ours up last night. Hopefully will be up today.

    Impressive part of our game was our defence, both their tries were gifts from Ferguson and should never have been scored. Yes soft tries but easily fixed.

    Really interesting reading through this after being at the game and so not hearing any of the commentary. Thought we were great against a very tough team. Some questions for the Refs but on balance it's better that they put the whistle away. A couple of highlights were Timmys run leading up to the third? try and Tep's big hit. Alvaro was greatly improved I'm sure because we had all the ball in the first 20.Thought Kane was good but on for 2 or 3 minutes too long. Fergo and Bogan cancelled each other out.
    Made the long drive home to the south Coast go quite quickly.

    Tep seems to be hitting harder in D. I think more time in the middle suits him defensively.

    I've read a few articles from the jounos and all mention Sharks injuries (but not Parras) and the way its reading it is because of those injuries they lost, not that Parra played well. You have to remember that Parra also lost a spine player, bombed probably 2 and gifted a try to them courtesy of Ferguson.

    Interesting that Fox commentary seemed to focus before and throughout the game on how young the Sharks team were and how inexperienced.

    Yes, they had 5 players who had played less than 10 games going into last night (we only had 3) but they also had 6 players with over 150 games (we only had 3 again). Both teams had 3 players who have not turned 21 yet and they had 4 players who have had their 30th birthday, compared to our 2 only.

    Made me so some quick research.

    Average age of Eels players last night = 25
    Average age of Sharks players last night = 26
    Average # of games for Eels players before last night = 92
    Average # of games for Sharks players before last night = 95

    So, in reality although only a small difference, we actually had a younger squad, with less experience but I guess that didn't fit the narrative.

    I’m happy that we won this game.
    It’s much better than when we lose. I’m not as happy then.

    Yeah I agree, winning is good and losing is plop.
