You could tell at the coachs interviews,obrien was filthy pissed,and so it should have been, the boys stepped up and earnt their money, but imagine if AJ was playing he would have 3 more trys, last year he missed 3 or 4 with the hamstring,this year its the quad,imagine the talley our champion would haveYeeehaaaa!! What a night!! That really is a fantastic win when you take a step back and have a look at it. Super, super impressive. Eight, yes eight, regulars already out, lose your halfback in the opening minute, and playing a confident Knights team at home. Yet we still played pretty damn good and got a pretty comfortable win! I know it was against Newcastle but when you consider all the guys we were missing, it was just so impressive! One for the ages I believe, such was the effort.
It did get a bit shaky there for a time in the first half but super proud of the boy's effort to turn it around and actually dominate the game. I didn't expect a performance of such quality but we did it! Commitment, passion, focus, it was all there!!
Our star players all fired while the rest did their jobs and that's what I've been banging on about all week. Our middles in particular were outstanding and they set up the win I believe.
A lot of guys out there who haven't played much in first grade and guys who weren't used to the minutes they were playing. I'm just so proud of the way they stepped up.
That was awesome!! A vital two points too! Stoked!
Well done lads, this is a game I will never forget. So tough, so brave. That's the South Sydney spirit!
