    Looking at the stats at the end on the screen, it was a pretty evenly matched game (although their tackle busts were double ours) where we won the completions.

    4 tries a piece and us taking opportunities with penalty goals the difference.

    2 middling teams playing and it was a decent spectacle and we won. Bank it and move on, we'll be better for it.

    This to me was a crucial game in the finals race. Win 50% of our remaining games and i think we make the finals and after the spoon anything more than that will be a bonus for me.

    They said in the presser that we had 4 forwards who cracked 100m and they had none.

    Also said that Fergo has the week off. Coming back on Sat for captains run.

    TBH I thought Hoffman looked off the pace in defence today. If we want to see what Parry is made of now is the time to do it before Jennings and Waka return.

    Ethan Parry is not a good defender. The Wests centre opposing him today had it all over him. He will get slaughtered by a good NRL centre.

    I thought Drown was better than last game. Sure he made errors but ive got faith.
    Dissapointed Salmon didn't get more game time.
    Evans wasnt great. Lots more lazy efforts today but maybe its a one off. Id still prefer Mannah.
    Much better tactics today. Taking penalty kicks for goal, Moses varied kicking game, Nrowns playmaking etc.
    Not perfect but I reckon we'd normally lose a game like that.
    How good is Lane. Buy of the year. Love the guy. Hes definitely SOO quality.
    Go you Mighty Eels.

    The refereeing is so inconsistant, when Moses did the chip kick he looked highly likely to score the try. The referees decided that a penalty was sufficient but I for the life of me can't understand why the offending player was not sinbinned for a professional foul.

    I reckon things being a bit tough for Dylan Brown is good for him in both the short and long term. I think he can learn from his mistakes and become a better player.

    I see todays game as a good learning curve for our side. In recent times we would look good with the ball but still get beat. Today we played a simple game, but stuck to it with minimal errors. Good kicking game and kick chase.

    Not sure if you mean me but well done guys, simply too good. Whilst Im very disappointed, it a nice change to see a game between the two teams where both teams put in. Seem to me recent games between Tiges & Eels, there is usually one team totally derping it up. Whilst today had its derp moments (In particular from the refs), overall both teams put in and you guys at the end of the day deserved the win.

    Yep we really slowed our game down today. Not many offloads, no long sweeping plays. Our ruck defence was a lot better too, only once or twice from memory that they caught us. Correlation or causation?

    It's very odd that we persist with it.
